In a late change of plan, Stagecoach's Interconnect 3 between Grimsby, Market Rasen and Lincoln will not be seeing cuts of the scale previously planned. It will remain hourly between Lincoln and Market Rasen, with journeys extending every two hours to Grimsby, more often at peak times. The 3B schooldays service via Binbrook is also 'saved'. Only one journey each way requires a change of vehicle at Market Rasen.
The short journeys between Grimsby and Laceby, designed to maintain a roughly hourly frequency on this section will not now operate, leaving Laceby and Hainton Avenue with 1.5 buses per hour (Humber Flyer and 2 hourly 3). Weelsby Road (between Nuns Corner and Hainton Avenue) goes from an hourly to 2 hourly frequency.
Considering what it could have been, the new timetable is to be welcomed.

On Stagecoach's Interconnect 51 between Grimsby and Louth the plan to reduce to hourly between Holton Le Clay and Louth is still occuring, reverting back to the pre-2005 service level. Unlike then however, the section between Chatsworth Drive and Louth Bus Station will not be supplemented with a town service.
