Bus service proposal: route G1

Closed 16 Aug 2013

Opened 3 Jun 2013

Results updated 19 Dec 2013

There were 176 responses from members of the public with 59 supporting the changes and 112 opposing them. Five people did not provide an answer regarding support or opposition. 

The key issues raised were the negative effects on parking provision and road safety and also that some passengers would have a longer walk to access buses.

We have discussed the results with the London Borough of Wandsworth and we have decided not to progress with the changes. The routeing of the G1 will remain as it is currently.

Overview

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

We developed proposals for route G1 and asked for your views.

Route G1 (Streatham High Road – Battersea Shaftsbury Estate)

Route G1 operates between Streatham High Road and Shaftsbury Estate, Battersea, every 20 mins during Monday to Saturday daytimes and every 30 mins during the evenings and all day Sunday.

Wandsworth Council  raised some concerns about two-way bus operations in Sabine Road, Battersea. Following a review with the council, we proposed to change route G1 so that westbound buses would use the whole length of Eversleigh Road instead of Grayshott Road and part of Sabine Road. Eastbound buses would continue to serve Sabine Road.  

There would be no change to the current frequencies.
