The problem of buses parking on both sides of of Streatham Hill near the junctions with Wavertree Road and Telford Avenue has been endangering pedestrians and other road users for over a year, but has worsened in recent months, affecting all those who travel into Streatham from Brixton direction.
Some evenings in February more than 20 buses have been counted parking illegally on the Red Route. This causes hazards by:
* blocking the entrance to the garage, forcing pedestrians out onto the busy A23
* forcing cyclists to move into the outer lanes of the carriageway
* blocking the view of motorists emerging from side roads onto the A23
With no improvement since then, we have now raised the matter again. Police say this must not continue and will visit again - to raise the matter with manager of the bus garage.
We will keep you posted!
