Bus routes left unfilled after the collapse of a firm in north Wales will be replaced, but with a reduced service.

Wrexham council said eight services had not been replaced after Ruabon-based GHA Coaches went into administration in July.

Contracts have now been awarded for these, but many will not run to the original timetables.

Start dates and new timetables have not yet been finalised.

The traffic commissioner needs to approve the new plan before it can be implemented.

The council's lead member for transport, David A Bithell, said: "We know the weeks since GHA Coaches went into administration have been an incredibly frustrating time for people reliant on public transport, but following the tender process we will be able to get things moving as quickly as possible."

The services covered by the new contract will be:

  • 6 & 17 - Wrexham - Ruabon and Wrexham - Moss/Lodge
  • 42F - Erbistock Area
  • 45F - Maelor Area
  • 47F - West Wrexham area
  • 64 - Llanarmon DC - Llangollen
  • 146 & 34 - Wrexham - Whitchurch and Wrexham - Trevalyn
