Thanks.

Not too sure on specific problems on the TEN, but the service's Next Stop Announcements are due to be launched again soon. They will be brought into the current format, with the TFT monitor showing a 'line plan' of the next stops, and voiced by Emma Hignett (like all of the new buses and re-launched Washington services).

But not clear whether they're serving the cannon or not? 

Works are only ever temporary, and to be honest, the X21 reliability has been spot on since the change. It does now have an extra bus on the road during the day, compared to what the Pronto had.

Yes, I have noticed it has certainly improved.  When the roadworks along Durham Road are finished it should not be so much of an issue because there will be more bus lanes around the Low Fell area.

From a brief look over the Facebook page, the X21 is rarely mentioned. The 21 takes a hammering but perhaps the upcoming changes might help. Doubtful though.

The upcoming service changes should make the timetable more achievable, given that it'll save a few minutes up the Front Street and then back down, with the layover instead taking place at the Red Lion.

There will also be an extra bus added to the cycle on Sundays.

If it was serving The Cannon during the diversion, then it seems daft sending it all the way up to Wrekenton and back down. Particularly for the sake of one stop.
I may have been quicker sitting in traffic.
