Mayor of London Reveals Bus Network Expansion Plans for Outer London

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has announced significant expansion plans for strengthening the bus network in outer London.

This initiative has been designed to complement and maximise the benefits of the decision to expand the ULEZ zone to Greater London.

Improved transport in outer London will create faster connections, better coverage and more direct, frequent services

As part of these plans, new routes will be introduced in Sutton, with improved service to the new Cancer Hub at the Royal Marsden Hospital.

Meanwhile, in east London, new zero-emission cross-river bus services will be introduced, including a high-frequency service between Grove Park and Canary Wharf, as well as an extension to route 129 (Lewisham – North Greenwich) to Great Eastern Quay.

Additional services and improvements that will add over one million further kilometres to the bus network are also planned to support growth areas in a number of other outer London locations.

This is part of the biggest ever expansion of the bus network in outer London.

Plans include:

  • Improved links between Harold Hill and Upminster in Havering
  • New and improved services at Brent Cross in Barnet
  • Improved services in Southall
  • Bus improvements in the Harrow & Wealdstone area
  • New routes to serve the Haringey Heartlands development at Wood Green
  • Better bus links in Wanstead, including to and from Whipps Cross Hospital

Alongside these upcoming developments, Transport for London (TfL) is continuing to develop and consult on improvement plans for the bus network in outer London as part of its Bus Action Plan.
