Transport for London has recently completed a study of the Royal Oak site and has decided not to bring forward proposals for a coach hub at this location.

On Thursday 14 March I informed Karen Buck MP, who had contacted me about this matter following a campaign by Cllr Maggie Carmen and others, that TfL would not be progressing a coach station at this location and I understand that you should have received a copy of this response.

As leases begin to expire at Victoria Coach Station from 2023 TfL will continue to work with stakeholders to consider other options for coach facilities in London.
