NUNHEAD LANE: Buses are operating between Shoreditch and Peckham Rye only due to a low hanging tree branch. There is no service between Peckham Rye and Nunhead. Buses towards Shoreditch will depart from Nigel Road (Stop WM on Peckham Rye).

Central London Bus Review: We are consulting on withdrawing some individual bus routes or sections of routes where they are covered by other high-frequency services or are close to alternative stops. These proposals aim to ensure we still have a strong bus service to support London’s economic recovery, while simplifying the network to ensure buses are operating frequently and reliably in the areas that need them most. The changes being consulted on are intended to cause as little disruption to passengers as possible, while making the required savings. The Hopper Fare will continue to allow customers to change between buses within 60 minutes of starting journeys without having to pay more.
