Transport for London is reviewing the bus routes that run through central London as a consequence of the impending arrival of the Elizabeth Line, the Crossrail 1 project, and the demand by some for more pedestrianisation in the Oxford Street area.
For each of the routes concerned, TfL will consult bus passengers and key members of the local community. In September they consulted on re-routing the bus 13 so that it no longer goes down Oxford Street to Aldwych and instead runs down Park Lane to terminate at Victoria. Click here for more.
TfL are currently consulting on significant changes to buses terminating at Liverpool Street. They propose that Route 23 would no longer run between Aldwych and Liverpool Street bus station and that Route 11/N11 would be rerouted to Worship Street via Threadneedle Street and Bishopsgate. It would no longer serve Old Broad Street and Liverpool Street bus station but would still serve Liverpool Street station at Bishopsgate.Click here for more.
Councillor Louise Hyams says: "We are keen that residents participate in these consultations so that there are no unintended consequences for what could mean significant cuts in bus services. Please contact us on email if you would like us to take up your concerns with TfL."
