TfL’s proposal is to increase the peak hour service from a bus every 6-7 minutes to a bus every 6 minutes, with one more extra journey in the morning peak. That’s it – no other changes to frequency at any other time.
We have again stressed the lack of direct links from North Peckham to Central London; the need to pay two fares to get into town and the poor provision of public transport in this area. We have nevertheless acknowledged that the 343 does provide a useful direct link for local residents who work in the London Bridge area. We are taking the line that, rather than putting yet more buses on the 343, TfL should be putting a second bus route on along Southampton Way to offer a wider choice of destinations (including a link into town).
Many thanks to everyone who responded to our recent questionnaire – your feedback has helped to shape our submission.
