Give us your views on proposals to introduce a new section of bus lane on Croxted Road.
We want to improve bus journey times along Croxted Road, as it has been identified that buses experience delays along this section, in particular just south of the junction with the A205 South Circular Road - northbound buses are sometimes unable to access the bus stop due to a combination of queuing traffic and parked vehicles upstream of the bus.
In order to support this, we are proposing to introduce a short length of northbound peak only bus lane installed between the junction of Ling’s Coppice and the bus stop south of the A205 South Circular Road (Stop WS). The bus lane will operate from 7am-7pm Monday to Saturday and would require introduction of new kerbside restrictions of no waiting and no loading to match the operational hours of the bus lane i.e 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday. To support these changes on the western kerbline, it is also proposed to introduce no waiting/no loading restrictions on the eastern kerbline during bus lane hours.
These proposals should improve journey times for passengers using the route 3, which is a high frequency service between Crystal Palace and Trafalgar Square. By making bus travel more reliable, this supports Transport for London's Healthy Streets indicator: 'People choose to walk, cycle and use public transport'.
We would appreciate your views on these plans, and whether there are any issues that we should take note of.
