Plans for new bus lane on Streatham High Road
Proposals for a new bus lane northbound on Streatham High Road have been published. Transport for London (TfL) is seeking local views by Tuesday, 14th March.
The proposal is a bus lane operating Mon-Sat 7am-7pm, starting north of Becmead Avenue and ending near Drewstead Road. The lane would be open to buses, coaches, motorcycles and scooters, as well as cycles and taxis.
The pavement at 148 Streatham High Road (outside New Look, Poundland and Nationwide) would be narrowed by one metre to make way for a loading and disabled parking bay.
The plan is for the bus lane to be continuous, except at the approaches to the junctions of Streatham High Road with Woodbourne Avenue, Kingscourt Road, Norfolk House Road, Mount Ephraim Road and Broadlands Avenue, where general traffic would be allowed to enter the bus lane to turn left into side roads.

Meanwhile, two other schemes affecting traffic on the A23 have been given the go-ahead. Work on new bus lanes in Streatham Hill and Brixton Hill will begin this Spring, 2017.
