Answer for 255 Bus

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The extension uses roads in two boroughs, Lambeth and Wandsworth. The major new areas served are in Lambeth but the route needs to use roads in Wandsworth to reach the local town centre, Balham. TfL has been seeking to reach an agreement with Wandsworth Council on traffic management measures to facilitate the extension. Given the time elapsed since the consultation on this proposal, TfL wishes to reach a conclusion with Wandsworth and is discussing this with council officers.
