Forthbridge Road bus stop on Clapham Common Northside has been extended. It’s one of the first to provide more waiting space – and to allow safe use of the pavement at the same time as the bus stop.
A new section of pavement has been added to make sure that prams & wheelchairs can still use the bus boarding ramps with a rainbow to boot!
We can expect to see more of these extensions, which TfL call ‘bus stop buildouts’, at busy bus stops where pavements are narrow and traffic is fast. TfL are also considering relocating some bus stops away from places that are likely to generate crowds or queues on the pavement – for example shops with external queueing areas, and cash machines.
