**029** has been introduced as a replacement for other numbers. The
mapping was:

01222 AABBBB | became | 029 20AA BBBB |

However, numbers only diallable using the full code changed as follows:

01222 UABBBB | became | 029 10UA BBBB |

(where U is 0 or 1).

The new numbers were introduced by 1999-06-01 with parallel running until 2000-08-05. Dialling without codes involved a flash change early on 2000-04-22, with 6 digit dialling used before then and 8 digit dialling afterwards.
