TfL’s proposed changes to 404 and 434 bus routes delayed to April 2020

Between 9 January and 11 February 2019 TfL consulted on changes to bus routes 404 and 434.

Due to that feedback they altered the original proposal to suggest using Farthing Way (Coulsdon Bypass) on route 404 and asked for comments by 11 December 2019.

They received 13 comments although only two of those were about the use of Farthing Way. One was supportive and the other suggested the 404 should use Woodcote Grove Road and The Avenue instead of Farthing Way.

This option was considered. However, using the bypass is preferable as it enables a shorter run time and allows the route to quickly serve central Coulsdon and Coulsdon South station. The 404 will still serve the town centre, just not the current northbound stops.

The other feedback repeated comments raised in the original consultation, including concerns about the appropriate siting of new bus stops in Cane Hill and Old Coulsdon, road safety in winter and road maintenance.

These issues are currently being discussed with the council and the developer of Cane Hill Park. Because of this and related road works the proposed implementation of the changes has been moved from 4 January 2020 to April 2020.
