Travel disruption notes

NORFOLK PLACE: From 09:00 Monday 27 June to 17:00 Friday 01 July, buses are on diversion from Sussex Gardens to Paddington Station/Eastbourne Terrace due to water works. Buses will not serve the stops St Marys Hospital (Stop G) and Paddington Station (Stop F).

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.

Bus Stop Closed Buses are on diversion due to water works at Norfolk Place. Visit tfl.gov.uk/bus/status
