Closed 9 Oct 2015

Opened 25 Aug 2015

Results Updated 9 Mar 2016

We received 881 responses to the consultation. 869 responses were from members of the public and 12 were from stakeholders. Thanks to all those who provided their views – we appreciate your patience in waiting for our response.

14 per cent of the responses supported or partially supported the proposals, 80 per cent said they did not support the proposals, 1 per cent were not sure, and 1 per cent did not express an opinion.

We have considered all of the responses and have decided not to proceed with the proposals to reroute the 463 via Maldon Road, Montagu Gardens and Demesne Road. The service will therefore continue to remain on its existing line of route. However, the school day only double deck journeys between Coulsdon South and Beddington Church will be renumbered as route 633 from April 2016.

Update ends

What we proposed

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

We proposed to make some changes to route 463 and wanted to hear your views.

Route 463 operates between Coulsdon South Station and Pollards Hill. We proposed to alter the route south of Beddington so that it runs via Maldon Road, Montagu Gardens and Demesne Road. These roads are not currently served by a bus route and the proposed change would bring a number of local residents closer to the local bus network.

The proposed change would mean that route 463 no longer serves Manor Road and Croydon Road between Maldon Road and Demesne Road. Customers would still be able to use route 410 to travel along this section of Manor Road and Croydon Road, and route 407 along Croydon Road.

The 463 would still run at the same frequencies as now, with buses about every 20 minutes during the day Monday to Saturday and every 30 minutes each evening and Sundays.

The route 463 school day only journeys between Coulsdon South and Beddington Church which use double deck buses are not affected by this proposal and will continue to follow the existing routeing using Manor Road and Croydon Road. If we go ahead with the proposed changes to the main route 463 service, the double deck school journeys would become a separate service renumbered as route 633.

New bus stops

As part of the proposal, new bus stops would be required on Maldon Road, Montagu Gardens and Demesne Road. We have identified the following potential locations for the new bus stops, which have been chosen to avoid being directly outside a property and to minimise loss of parking.

Towards Coulsdon

  • Demesne Road, south of the junction with Evelyn Way
  • Montagu Gardens, at the junction with Demesne Road
  • Malden Road, west of the junction with Bute Road
     

Towards Pollards Hill

  • Malden Road, at the junction with Manor Road
  • Montagu Gardens, east of the junction with Bute Road
  • Montagu Gardens, at the junction with Demesne Road
