Answered By:

A site meeting took place with senior staff at TfL and Sutton Council.  A live test was set up to examine how buses would drive before a decision was made to build the scheme. This led to some design revisions around bus stops/cages and the height of some ramps to ensure bus services were not negatively impacted by the scheme. 

 

The scheme was fully communicated with relevant officers in TfL and TfL were supportive of the scheme.
