For all TfL and Utility Company roadworks on the TLRN there is an in depth assessment regarding the impact on bus lane or cycle lane closures. Works are planned to minimise disruption to buses and cyclists either by alternative working methods or working outside of peak traffic hours. If unavoidable then suitable diversion routes are established and clearly signed. Working outside of peak hours and keeping bus lanes and cycle lanes open during peak hours where possible is a priority on all works
