I assume you are referring to the decision to route the B11 along New Road rather than Knee Hill. Peter Hendy has reviewed the decision, and concluded that the New Road routeing should remain in place. This decision was conveyed to all interested parties on 23 October. Knee Hill has no pavements for much of its length whereas New Road does and the present routeing improves access to Bexley College. It also enables same-stop interchange with route 99.In order to meet requests to assist those with impaired mobility in the Knee Hill area, Mobility Bus 938 will be extended from Abbey Wood to Knee Hill, Federation Road, Bostall Lane and Bostall Hill from 21 February. .
