Transport for London (TfL) has published new maps with more detail on the future routes on the Superloop network in conjunction with a public consultation on the new route of this network between Harrow and North Finchley.
The Superloop is a proposed expansion of the current London bus network that would cover the whole of the capital. It is intended to better connect parts of outer London after the city-wide expansion of the ULEZ.
Localised route maps have been created to show how the proposed new routes could connect to other transport services, such as the tube, Overground, DLR and National Rail services.
These new maps reveal further detail into the potential routes of future bus routes, including:
- X183 (Harrow to Finchley)
- X34 (Finchley to Walthamstow)
- X119 (Croydon to Bromley)
- X269 (Bexleyheath to Bromley)
- X123 (Walthamstow to Royal Docks)
The consultation is directed at potential passengers on the X183 bus route, which is set to include a new limited express stop bus service between Harrow and North Finchley.
Supported by £6m of additional funding from the mayor, the Superloop represents a key part of his commitment to improve the bus network in outer London and could potentially see more than four million additional kilometres added to London’s bus network.
Sadiq Khan, mayor of London, said: “The Superloop is part of my plans to improve public transport in outer London. These new routes will substantially improve access to transport services, town centres and hospitals in outer London, and help build a better, greener London for everyone.
“I’m so excited to be kicking off the Superloop journey with our new detailed maps. Londoners can see for themselves where the buses will be stopping and how the Superloop could benefit them.
“I’m also pleased to be launching the first Superloop consultation today with the new X183 route from Harrow to North Finchley. I encourage everyone in the local area to get involved and have their say.”
The Superloop has already been implemented in some parts of outer London, such as the X140 connecting Heathrow and Harrow, and route X26 connecting Heathrow and West Croydon, further Superloop routes are expected to be introduced in stages.
These routes will all carry the new Superloop branding.
