Have your say on proposed changes to bus routes serving Forestdale, New Addington and Monks Hill
17/11/2014 09:43:00


Transport for London (TfL) - which reports to Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London - has carried out a review of bus routes serving Forestdale, New Addington and Monks Hill.

They’ve come up with a number of proposed changes which they believe will improve the interchange between bus routes and trams, improve bus access to the south end of Central Parade and enhance links to Croydon University and Princess Royal Hospitals. The proposed changes are:

- routes 64, 130 and 464 would serve new areas in New Addington;

- route 353 would be extended to Forestdale;

- route 359 would be extended to Purley Cross and have its hours of operation increased, including a Sunday service;

- routes 64, 130 and 359 would all have their frequencies increased, with the 64 running 24 hours a day hence doing away with the need for a separate N64 service;

- route T33 would be renumbered route 433; and

- routes T31 and T32 would cease.

TfL are keen to hear residents’ views so please take a few minutes to let them know what you think by visiting their website here. If you feel strongly about these changes, it would be helpful to let me know your views too.

The consultation period is open until 19 December 2014 and if the response is positive then the changes will come into effect next year.
