  • Brixton Town Centre Bus lane changes

    Created by Simon Still // 1 thread

    Brixton Road is a busy road served by 16 bus routes during the day and seven bus routes at night. Customers using our bus services either visit Brixton Town Centre, or interchange with other local services including Tube, train and cycle hire.

    We recognise the importance that buses play in the town centre. We are proposing improvements to the road layout which will speed up journey times of southbound bus services, and subsequently improve bus reliability.

    What are we proposing?

    Our proposals include:

    Rationalising bus stopping arrangements for southbound services in Brixton Town centre. We will reduce the number of bus stops from three to two which will better match destinations and improve interchange between bus services. One bus stop will serve routes to Herne Hill and Tulse Hill etc and the other will serve routes to Brixton Hill and beyond.
    Creating a double bus lane on Brixton Road (southbound only). This will reduce the number of general traffic lanes to one.
    Starting the southbound bus lane on the A23, south of the junction Acre Lane, Coldharbour Lane and Effra Road earlier
    Relocating and slightly increasing the length of a loading bay in the southbound bus lane
    Providing signage and line markings which will make it clear which lanes vehicles should use at the Acre Lane/Coldharbour Lane and Effra Road junction. This will improve safety.
    Please refer to the plans below for further details.

  • The 'Milton Road Effect'

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Vehicles are continually abusing cyclists who use the road here because the bus lane on the other side forces the carriageway to be narrow.

    Although there is the cycleway, it has the usual problems of loss of priority at sideroads, bins in the way, people going in and out of driveways, etc.
