The Peterborough 6 is getting an extra early journey , on top of the one recently added. Looks like they will now connect easily with the first VTEC service towards London. I noticed some Peterborough routes have changed by a few mins.

OK - Stagecoach have new timetables online for lots of their routes across East, but not much yet for Norfolk and Wisbech.

They have cancelled all the Norfolk services from 29th April

Only buses which will run in Norfolk is the 505 for a small section between Long Sutton and Lynn and the March to Wisbech between Blacksmiths Arms and Morrisons 1/4 of a mile

The 505 has already been changed from 20 minutes to 30 minutes the remaining routes will remain unchanged

46 is finished with Stagecoach, Lynx will run the 46 but only the section between Lynn and Wisbech, the section from Wisbech through Wisbech St Mary, Guyhirn will not run

The only services Stagecoach in Norfolk will continue with is the 505, the Leverington buses as they are now and the town bus in Wisbech

Also as mentioned above the Wisbech to March through Friday Bridge will still run

The Three Holes, Upwell/Outwell Emneth to Wisbech will be run be Go To Town (16 seater van)

At the same link above, I've put together a file called Stagecoach Norfolk changes and new tts where online v1.
This is an expanded version of the council's list with timetables online now, and also some other services from the former NG area by Lynx/West Hunts/First/Konect, except pure school/college services.
As there are no changes showing on Traveline for the 50 and 56 and 66, I've used SC versions for these.
45 (Was 55) is there now from the Traveline file.
505 is there from Traveline, but it includes old and new.
I will update as and when 49, Stagecoach own, and the Sanders ones are online.

Correct, I must have missed that one, for some reason I thought they cancelled the whole route
