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

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

No change to 315 bus

Peabody Hill

Peabody Hill

Transport for London (TfL) have decided to drop the plans for a new route for 315 bus through West Norwood  as there was little local support  for the plans.

Last summer TfL consulted local people about extending the 315 bus to Peabody Hill & Trust Walk, a community of 250 homes, at the top of Birkbeck Hill SE21 . Of the 513  people who took part in the consultation  only 22% supported the new route.  174 of those who replied used the 315 bus which links West Norwood with Balham.

TfL said “We will consider other ways of improving access to Peabody Hill. Any proposals will take account of the issues raised in this consultation and will be subject to further consultation.”

A proposal to extend the 315 bus route to Peabody estate ( near Tulse Hill station) means the 315 bus would no longer travel to Norwood High Street, Ernest Avenue and Knight’s Hill, including the stops for West Norwood Station and the present terminus at Cheviot Road.
The Mayor of London’s Transport for London (TfL) is now consulting on these proposed changes and there is a chance to see the plans and speak to TFL on Thursday 2nd July between 3pm and 8.30pm at Aspire Centre, 1 Park Hall Road SE21 8EH ( at end of Robson Road) and Thursday 16th July 3pm to 8.30pm at The Portico Gallery, 23c Knights Hill SE27 0HS.

Monday 10th August is closing date for this formal consultation

Help maintain our local streets

Image1168All the public sector agencies have less money to spend and so are cutting down on the number of paid inspection staff.

Residents can help to get problems on our local streets fixed quickly by reporting problems to the responsible agency. The agencies usually locate each incident on a map before actioning so try to get the most precise address possible, preferably with post code!.

There are web sites like http://www.fixmystreet.com/
