The Mayor


I have received a fresh barrage of complaints about excessive unreliability on route P12. In your response to question number 4029/2010 you explained that TfL felt roadworks were to blame for poor performance on this route, but that these would be ceasing in December. What is the current problem on this route and what are TfL doing to improve the matter?

Route P12 continues to be disrupted by the effects of roadworks, which in some cases have been extended beyond the original forecast date for completion. Victorian Water Main replacement works are ongoing at Ilderton Road and Asylum Road. The London Borough of Southwark has also been undertaking improvement works at Southwark Park Road, which were completed on 10 February.

TfL continues to work closely with the operator of the P12 to determine effective and affordable solutions to the disruption. An emergency schedule has been introduced for the P12 and TfL will closely monitor the service to ensure its performance improves.
