Buses will be unable to the serve the stops from 'New Cross / Jerningham Road' (N) to 'Kitto Road' during this time.

CHELTENHAM ROAD: Buses are on diversion via Vesta Road, Shardeloes Road, Brockley Road, Stondon Park, Honor Oak Park, Forest Hill Road and Peckham Rye due to a burst water main. Buses towards Peckham will miss stops from Drakefell Road to Peckham Rye/Nunhead Lane. Buses towards New Cross Gate will miss stops from Solomons Passage to Kitto Road.

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.
