NEW bus timetables are set to come into effect.

The 31 and 37 services operated by D&G will run under new times starting from Monday (February 5).

These services, which were taken over from Arriva last year, both travel between Crewe and Northwich, calling at the likes of Winsford, Middlewich and Sandbach along the way.

The 31 will see some weekday journeys start earlier and run later into the afternoon, with D&G having allotted extra time at areas where there is high traffic, particularly Leighton Hospital and Winsford.

There is also an additional weekday evening journey between Winsford and Crewe.

The 37 will also see earlier and later weekday journeys, with the changes made due to congestion around Sandbach and Winsford.

Additionally, some journeys that currently terminate in Sandbach in the early evening have now been extended to Crewe.

Meanwhile, bus times during the middle of the day on weekdays and all day on Saturdays (excluding one early evening 37 journey between Winsford and Sandbach) remain unchanged.

Full details of the new timetables can be found on the D&G Bus website.
