Deadline Approaches For 485 Bus Route Consultation

Have your say on proposed route changes

Deadline Approaches For 485 Bus Route Consultation in the borough of Wandsworth

Residents are being urged to have their say on Transport for London (TfL) proposals to change the route of the number 485 bus which serves Wandsworth Town and East Putney.

The 485 runs from Hammersmith to Ram Street via Putney. TfL wants to increase the frequency of the buses from two to four an hour, with one running every 15 minutes. There's also a plan to introduce evening and Sunday services for the first time.

The route would be changed to run via Putney High Street and the Upper Richmond Road, rather than Putney Bridge Road, and would be extended to include the Riverside Quarter, where a new bus stand would be installed.

TfL wants to bring in the changes to deliver a more frequent bus service between Hammersmith and Wandsworth and provide the Riverside Quarter with better connections to public transport

The proposed changes would be introduced from late 2018, subject to the outcome of the consultation, further approvals (including implementation of a right turn for buses from Upper Richmond Road into Putney High Street) and the availability of funding.
