Stratford Gyratory removal bus service changes

Closed 21 Jul 2017

Opened 12 Jun 2017

Overview

The London Borough of Newham has developed proposals that will transform Stratford town centre. This will include removing the gyratory around the Stratford Centre and introducing two-way traffic movement on Great Eastern Road, The Grove, Romford Road and Broadway.

The current configuration of the gyratory prevents the operation of a simple bus network (i.e. one that serves stops on both sides of the same road). Two way operation would simplify the bus network and allow buses to serve stops on both sides of the road. In particular, it would allow Stratford bus station to be served in both directions by westbound routes serving Broadway and Stratford High Street.

The London Borough of Newham has already carried out consultation on the Stratford Town Centre Improvements. For more information visit: www.newham.gov.uk/Stratford

We have reviewed the key bus issues that were raised with the London Borough of Newham as part of their consultation and have used these to help inform our network planning. We are now carrying out consultation on the associated changes to bus services that can be achieved with a two way road network in Stratford town centre.

The bus routes affected are: 25, 425, 86, 158, 241, D8, 257, 276, 104, 238, 262, 473 and N8 – routes 308 and 69 would remain as they currently operate.

What are we proposing?

  • Routes 25 and 425 would operate in both directions along Broadway; Great Eastern Road, Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road and Stratford High Street.
  • Routes 86 and N86 would operate in both directions serving Stratford Bus Station, Broadway and Romford Road.
  • Route 158 would operate in both directions along Great Eastern Road, serving Stratford bus station , Great Eastern Road and Angel Lane.
  • Route 241 would operate in both directions serving Angel Lane, Great Eastern Road, Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road, Broadway, Tramway Avenue and West Ham Lane.
  • Route D8 would operate in both directions serving Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road and Stratford High Street.
  • Route 257 would operate in both directions serving Leytonstone Road, The Grove, Great Eastern Road and Stratford bus station.
  • Route 276 would operate in both directions serving Stratford High Street, Great Eastern Road, Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road, Broadway, Tramway Avenue and West Ham Lane.
  • Routes 104, 238, 262 and 473 would all operate in both directions serving Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road, Broadway, Tramway Avenue and West Ham Lane.
  • Route N8 would operate in both directions serving Stratford High Street, Great Eastern Road, Stratford bus station, Great Eastern Road and the Grove.

Why We Are Consulting

The introduction of a two way road network in Stratford allows us to make improvements to the bus network in the area by simplifying routeings and improving interchange.

Buses would be able to serve stops on both sides of Great Eastern Road, The Grove, Romford Road and Broadway, and changes to junction layouts would allow Stratford bus station to be served by westbound bus routes along Stratford High Street. This would make the network more straight forward for passengers and would provide improved journey times and interchange on certain routes. There would also be a number of stop changes to facilitate this.

The stop changes may require some passengers to make a slightly longer walk. However, overall it is expected to be beneficial to passengers.  

Subject to the outcome of the consultation and completion of the required changes around the gyratory, the changes should be introduced by summer 2019.
