Withdrawal of Stagecoach service 73

Stagecoach have announced that their bus service 73 is to be withdrawn. The service will run for the last time on Saturday 1 September.

The service was introduced with the intention of providing a bus link between East Wichel and Wroughton. In practice it has been mainly used by East Wichel passengers as a more direct route to Swindon than Thamesdown service 11, with very few East Wichel passengers making the journey to Wroughton.
