Loughborough Junction residents and businesses are requesting an immediate solution to the lack of bus provision in the area as a result of the emergency closure of Coldharbour Lane for Gas main repairs. The 35, 45, 345 and N35 have been diverted via Herne Hill leaving those in the vicinity of Loughborough Junction with only buses on routes P4 (Diverted) and P5. There is no provision for the mile journey to Camberwell, and inadequate provision to Brixton (just over a mile away). Many elderly and disabled are unable to walk that far and many others unable to carry shopping such distances.
Val Shawcross (AM) said “I appreciate the urgency and seriousness of the situation and I would encourage members of the public to write to the Mayor as Chair of TfL”
Though of course it must be noted that the closure is not resulting from transport for London’s actions, who have responded to an unscheduled emergency gas repair.
Has the closed road and lack of transport affected you?
