West Lothian Council understands that First East Scotland are still assessing their proposed route changes following their consultation exercise. The council also understands that First do not yet have a confirmed date as to when any potential changes would be implemented.

Executive councillor for development and transport, Cathy Muldoon said: "We are awaiting further details from First East Scotland. These proposed changes are significant and I've received feedback from a number of people who have expressed some concerns over some of the proposed changes.

"I met with First Scotland East's Managing Director during their consultation exercise and raised a number of concerns in terms of the potential impact of some of the proposed changes on local services. He confirmed that those concerns would be taken into consideration but we will have to wait for First to provide further details before looking at what impact their changes will have on the bus network."
