Plans to switch the 469 route in Abbey Wood and Belvedere in relation with widespread Crossrail bus changes have been halted.
Plans were first announced some years ago as part of a wide ranging reworking of services. It was then revealed last week that the change on route 469 would go ahead – though that is now apparently on hold again. Plans would have seen the bus avoid part of Abbey Wood and heading down New Road towards the station. Click below for a larger view:
News of no change follows the 180s planned permanent diversion from Lewisham to north Greenwich being postponed as a new operator commences in October 2021 using electric buses.
Other changes announced in 2018 such as extending the 472 from Thamesmead to Abbey Wood and a curtailed B11 have also not yet occurred. New bus route 301 did begin operation linking Bexleyheath to Abbey Wood station, before running to Thamesmead and Woolwich.
There are plans to extended that to Charlton when new homes on the Charlton Riverside masterplan site complete.
