A bus service from Maldon to Colchester is to be extended.

The 75 and 75A University of Essex to Maldon via Colchester bus is run by First.

Between Monday to Friday, most 75A journeys which currently start or finish at Tiptree will be extended to and from Maldon, offering a half hourly service for most of the main part of the day.

An additional morning schoolday only journey will operate between Tiptree and Colchester at 7.38am, three minutes ahead of the existing journey from Maldon due at Tiptree at 0741.

The changes come into effect from April 20.
