Temporary Bus Route 560 17/11/12

Due to bridge works at Streatham Common Station, Routes 60, 118 and N133 were diverted via Norbury Station. To serve the unserved affected roads, former London United/RATP DPS buses were drafted to Quality Line (Epsom Coaches)/RATP to run the free shuttle bus service 560. This service runs from Streatham Common Station to Pollards Hill.

Nice sign on the Oyster reader of SDL02. Yes, the replacement bus is free! :)

Sorry this post is late, but due to a few off blog issues involving certain people, and workload, I was unable to put this post up until now.

Route 27 Extension 10/11/12

Route 27 has had a short new extension from Turnham Green Church to Chiswick, Business Park. The business park used to be the LT Chiswick Bus Works, now redeveloped to a business park. Route E10 is also planned to be extended into the business park.

Here are observations from the first two days of the extension:
