Proposed changes to bus route 339

Closed 14 Sep 2018

Opened 3 Aug 2018

Results updated 30 Nov 2018

In August / September 2018 we consulted on proposals to reroute the 339 in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following the reopening of Sidings Street.

We received 194 responses to the consultation, which ran from 3 August until 14 September 2018. There was general support for the changes. 

After careful consideration of the consultation responses received, we have decided to proceed with the changes as proposed.

Implementation of the changes will take place on 29 December 2018, before students return to the Bobby Moore Academy following the winter break.



Transport for London (TfL) keep the bus network under regular review, in order to provide the best service possible for customers in the most cost effective way.

We are proposing to make changes to route 339 in the Olympic Park. The reopening of Sidings Street following the 2012 Games means the south west of the park can now be better served by buses.

Operating buses around Sidings Street will bring the south-west of the park within 400m of a bus stop which better serves the London stadium and the aquatics centre. The Bobby Moore Academy primary and secondary schools will also have a direct bus route for many of their new pupils and staff.

What are we proposing?

We are proposing to reroute the 339 via Sidings street and Marshgate Lane and remove bus stops K, L, G and Z on Carpenters Road between the junction of White Post Lane and Marshgate Lane and Sidings Street. There will be a total of five new stops on Sidings street and Marshgate Lane. We are not proposing to change the frequency of the service at this time however we will continue to monitor this going forward. The rerouteing will mean journey times between Stratford City Bus Station and Hackney Wick increase slightly, in the region of 1 to 2 minutes. Please see the map below for further details.
