TfL consultation on re-routing of 463 bus


463 Map

Transport for London is formally consulting on the re-routing of the 463 bus route. The proposal is to direct the bus via Maldon Road, Montagu Gardens and Demesne Road in Wallington.

There has been considerable concern expressed about this re-routing by local residents, and in response it is being formally opposed by the relevant ward councillors, Tom Brake MP, and the council’s lead member for Transport.

However, Transport for London have advised that they will not accept views sent in to your MP or Councillors as part of their consultation process. This means that residents need to visit the web-site to register their concerns with TfL directly.

We would therefore urge anyone with views on the proposal to visit the website and make their comments through this formal survey:  http://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/route-463

This is a consultation, and TfL will make their decision on whether the 463 route should be altered or not, based on the responses that they receive. The consultation is open until 9th October 2015.
