The consultation has been released to pedestrianise Oxford Street
Oxford Circus to Selfridges pedestrianised by Dec 2018
Oxford Circus to TCR pedestrianised by Dec 2019
Selfridges to Marble Arch pedestrianised post 2020
For the buses it would mean:
7, 94 and 98 would be cut back to Marble Arch
113 cut back to Selfridges
159 cut back to Oxford Circus
139 & 390 diverted via Wigmore Street and Henrietta Place
10 & 23 merged to run as a new route from Hammersmith to Westbourne Park
Very short term vision used by TfL (no surprise) as there is no plan for a further re-routed 390 when OC to TCR is pedestrianised.
I cannot see a logical route for it east of Oxford Circus area.
Do we know for certain that LT's cannot negotiate the Paddington section bearing in mind that the bendybuses on the 436 managed it?
I might be wrong but I would assume that the 10/23 combi will continue as the existing route 10 contract?
