Update ends

The London bus network is kept under regular review. As part of this, we develop proposals for changes to services.

We proposed to extend route 42 to East Dulwich Sainsbury’s and we wanted to hear your views.

What we proposed?

At present, route 42 operates between Liverpool Street station and Denmark Hill (Sunray Avenue). We proposed to extend the route via Red Post Hill, East Dulwich Grove, Dog Kennel Hill to East Dulwich Sainsbury’s. The extension would improve links to both East and North Dulwich and to Sainsbury’s.

This proposed change would mean that Sunray Avenue would no longer be served by buses. Single deck buses would also be replaced with double deck buses along the whole of route 42.

In order to facilitate the extension along Red Post Hill, we would need to make alterations to the traffic islands to enable buses to use the road. We would also need to extend the double yellow lines at the bottom Red Post Hill junction with Sunray Avenue, to enable buses to easily continue serving along Red Post Hill.  

The length of the disabled parking bay on Red Post Hill junction with Denmark Hill will need to be reduced. However, this reduction in length will still allow one vehicle to park in this bay.

Subject to feedback from the consultation, we proposed to implement the changes in autumn 2016.
