Bus diversions in Thamesmead as Crossway bridge maintenance enters second phase

20 May 2008

The works are being carried out by Tilfen Land, a local developer.

They are expected to last three months and will affect routes 177, 229, 401, 472, 601, 602 and N1.

These will be diverted as follows:

  • Buses from Thamesmead will follow the northern arm of Crossway to the Summerton Way roundabout, where they will double back, returning along the northern arm of Crossway to Carlyle Road
  • From the Carlyle Road/Bentham Road roundabout all routes will continue with their journey as usual
  • Buses travelling in the other direction (towards Thamesmead) will follow the same diversion in reverse

Due to these diversions, buses will be unable to serve the stops located on the southern arm of Crossway.

Passengers are advised to check posters on local bus stops for more information about the diversions.

These arrangements ensure that residents around Crossway continue to be served as effectively as possible while maintaining through buses for all other users.

Other parts of the routes are unaffected.
