A formal consultation will help ‘seal the deal’.

Proposals to introduce a Sunday timetable for bus routes 352 and 354 have been welcomed.

Currently both routes operate on a Monday to Saturday service.

The Transport for London (TfL) proposals could see Sunday buses running later this year, with formal consultation taking place shortly.

The news follows lobbying by the council and resident groups to improve the Sunday bus timetable along both routes.

“These proposals will be warmly welcomed by everyone who has involved themselves in the campaign for the change. Visitors and shoppers visiting Bromley town centre will now have greater travel choice and critically, people travelling very locally in the western part of the borough, including Beckenham, Penge and West Wickham, will be able to take advantage of these new services too,” said Cllr Colin Smith, executive councillor for environment.

Cllr Smith added: “I would encourage everyone with an interest to respond to TfL’s formal consultation to help ‘seal the deal’ when fuller details emerge over coming months.”
