New 150 April Timetable

Traveline East Midlands has the new timetable for service 150 (East Halton-Immingham-Grimsby) from 2nd April. As already noted the service will omit Habrough from this date. Frequency remains 2 hourly on weekday daytimes. What is surprising though is that journey times will slightly increase as a result. What's being saved then by omitting Habrough other than a very small amount of fuel? Apparently it will take 16 minutes from Immingham County Hotel to North Killingholme. Really? The changes are rather strange to me. The only scenario I can think off is that the Harbough diversion is commercial and that Stagecoach want North East Lincolnshire Council funding for it.

I am also surprised that the service isn't being diverted into South Killingholme as a partial replacement for the withdrawal of the off peak service 45 from the village.
