Answer for Expansion of West Norwood Bus Station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I understand that Arriva who own the bus garage at Norwood are currently in negotiations with the landowner and are hoping to be able to acquire the site in the near future. Subject to planning permission this will allow them to extend their existing bus garage. I support this initiative as it will not only reduce the current issues with buses parking in the street but will also allow more buses to be accommodated at the garage contributing towards my plans to further expand the London bus network. .
