No 3 bus route in central London

snipimage2Transport for London (TfL) is making Oxford Street more friendly for pedestrians and changes to bus routes.

Part of the plan means the No 3 bus will run between Trafalgar Square and Russell Square instead of going via Regent Street. The route between Crystal  Palace and Trafalgar Square stays the same.

Similarly the N3 bus will no longer go to & from Oxford Circus but run between Russell Square & Trafalgar Square and then the usual N3 route to  & from Bromley North.

For more details see: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/bus-routes-3-137-and-n3/

The deadline for comments on the plan is Sunday 29th January 2017.

Changes to Norwood Road

Harpenden Road junction

After a series of workshops the community-led Streetworks project has drawn up detailed design plans to change and improve Norwood Road.

The plans include improving Station Rise in front of Tulse Hill station, widening the east pavement between Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way, options on parking,  the Norwood Road entrance to Harpenden Rd becoming one way to allow for a new zebra crossing over Norwood Road, a diagonal crossing at York Hill/Lancaster Avenue and  levelling the side roads with the pavement at their junction with Norwood Road.

You can comment on the designs until Tues 19th July at:  http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/norwood-road

But why not visit the exhibitions on Saturday 25th June 2.30-5pm at the West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre in Devane Way SE27 0DF  or Wednesday 6th July 6.30-9pm at the Old Library 14 Knights Hill SE27 0HY ?

There is also a chance to comment on the designs at the West Norwood Feast market on July 3rd and the Country Show on 16th & 17th July.

The improvements will be funded by Transport for London and works should start in  Autumn 2016.  See our earlier posts:  9/2/16 19/1/16 and 3/6/15
