New Double Deck Bus Route For Kidbrooke

TfL is proposing to introduce a new high-frequency double deck bus route between Kidbrooke Village and North Greenwich.

Requests have been made for additional services in the Kidbrooke area, and in line with the Mayor’s aim of improving bus services in outer London, Tfl have developed two new route options to link the new housing developments at Kidbrooke Village with underground services at North Greenwich.

Option 1 would operate via Blackheath Royal Standard. The first option would go via Kidbrooke, Kidbrooke Park Road/Rochester Way, Blackheath Royal Standard, Westcombe Hill, Peartree Way and West Parkside. This would provide new links between Kidbrooke, Blackheath Royal Standard and North Greenwich. It would provide additional capacity for 132, 108 and 422 – Journey time would be an estimated 30 mins at the morning peak.

While Option 2 would use a more direct route via the A2 and A102. The second option would operate from Kidbrooke Village to North Greenwich and would operate via the A2, A102 and Peartree Way and West Parkside. It would provide new links between Kidbrooke and North Greenwich and would provide additional capacity on the North Greenwich peninsula. this would be a non- stop option and take 25 mins at peak.
