Changes to Bus Services: TfL consultation

TfL are consulting on proposed big changes to bus services in central London. The only local route directly affected is the number 3 down South Croxted Road which will no longer go beyond Whitehall. However there will be other implications for West Norwood; for instance the 68 will get a lot busier between Holborn and Camberwell as the 171 is being withdrawn north of Elephant & Castle.
