The full list of the new 24/7 London bus lanes

Drivers who don't follow the rules face fines of up to £130

You'll notice a big change on certain London bus routes in the next few weeks

Transport for London is to trial extended bus lane hours on some of London’s busiest roads.

The 24/7 trial will begin to be rolled out from Sunday, September 13, and TfL said it will help ‘guard against a damaging car-led recovery, that would pose risks to safety, the environment and public health’.

Drivers who park or travel in the bus lanes could be hit with a Penalty Charge Notice of up to £130 and the trial will last up to 18 months.

A TfL spokesperson said the bus lanes are on the ‘Red Routes comprising more than 80km of road’.

They added: “General traffic will be restricted from using the bus lane during the off-peak hours, with car parking suspended on some routes. Blue Badge parking facilities will be retained in the trial. Clear signage will indicate which roads are affected and when they are expected to change.”

Claire Mann, Director of Bus Operations at TfL, said it is part of a bid to help London recover sustainably.

She said: “This pandemic has brought unprecedented changes to the way we all live, work and travel, and the trial of 24 hour bus lanes is an important way that we have adapted the transport network to respond to the pandemic and help London to recover in a sustainable way.

“As the trial gets underway later this month, we look forward to engaging with groups, organisations and individuals to gather their feedback.

“Along with robust data collected throughout the trial, this will help shape our future plans and ensure that any permanent changes we make to bus lanes are beneficial to the majority of people.”

I cannot find a better thread to park this on (admin, please feel free to move it if there is).

Driving into South London last week, mid-morning (10.30ish) I came out of the Blackwall Tunnel and manoeuvred into Blackwall Lane, heading South. I had spotted the pre-bus lane sign and start sign and read them both as 7am-10am as I approached the stationary traffic about half way down the lane, I recalled the signs and thought, OK I'll use the bus lane if nobody else is going to.... About 2/3 the way down there is a repeater sign (which amazingly wasn't facing the wrong way) and there I noticed the time on the bus lane is actually 7am - 10pm WTAF!!!!!! How the he11 are you supposed to see p for a where at no other bus lane EVER has there been a 10pm cut off??? Also note this bus lane EXCLUDES bikes as well.

The Google Maps image is out of date but expect them to milk the cash cow for a while anyway!

Willing to do my bit...
