Transport for London have today published details of a forthcoming express bus set to run between Bromley and Croydon.
Consultation was undertaken earlier this year on route SL5 which will form part of an orbital network around London.
A report has been published today by TfL – viewable here – with a total of 1,359 responses given to the consultation.
Changes since consultation
Changes made include “an additional stop at the junction of Barnfield Wood Road with Westmoreland Road to improve connectivity in that area” plus reducing the stops in Bromley town centre from four to three.
TfL state: “The proposed SL5 Civic Centre northbound stop will be removed and the southbound retained for interchange with route SL3.
“The southbound High Street SL5 stop will be removed as Bromley South station is 160 metres away. The northbound stop will be retained as it is further away from Bromley South and is 330 metres away from the removed Civic Centre stop.”
In Croydon ” the SL5 will now stop at Croydon, Park Street / St George’s Walk for the Town Centre.”
The existing 119 bus will remain with no loss of frequency. SL5 will run every 12 minutes Monday to Saturday daytime and every 15 minutes on Sundays and evenings.
Services are due to commence in spring 2024.
