Dec 21, 2017 22:38:53 GMT @metroman said:Hi all, I thought I’d start a thread about all the routes that cannot possibly run with double deckers. The purpose is to help those with route ideas and whether or not they are suitable for the vehicles they want to use. I’m sure I’ll miss out some and get some wrong so bear with me but I’ll keep the list updated as more of your facts come in. Please feel free to use the thread as a debate too, just to keep it interesting but try keep the topic to single vs double deck as much as possible. Here we go!!!
33: Hammersmith Bridge.
39: Roads around Southfields.
46: ? I assume this CAN be decked?
72: Hammersmith Bridge
84: ? I think this one can run with deckers
100: Shadwell (?)
108: Blackwall Tunnel
117: Low bridge St. John’s Road, Isleworth
124: Small roads? Where?
130: Bridge Weight restriction?
146: Small roads? Where?
153: Small roads? Where?
162: Small roads? Where?
167: Any low bridges or tight turns?
170: Low bridge Lombard Road, Battersea
192: Small roads? Where?
193: Small roads? Where?
206: Queens Park area Roads?
209: Hammersmith Bridge
223: The Avenue, Wembley?
226: Roads in Ealing?
228: Low bridge Old Oak Common Lane, East Acton
232: St. Raphael’s Estate?
235: Sunbury? NBQ?
272: Emlyn Road? Chiswick Grove Park Roads?
273: Small roads? Where?
Plenty of help required obviously so let’s keep it fun!
I’ll do 300+ later
39 Can accommodate double deckers as far as I'm aware
46 Can be double decked and has been in the past. Seems drivers are no longer trusted to negotiate the arched bridge at Kentish Town West.
124 Narrow roads North Downham estate.
130 Low bridge at Norwood Junction. Could be routed around it but would be time consuming and single deckers are adequate.
146 Narrow roads in Downe, has previously been RT/RM operated by not OPO double deckers.
162 Narrow roads Longlands area.
166 Trees between Chipstead Valley and Banstead.
The 39 has low trees in Southfields that prevent it from being double decker - the double decker school route takes a slightly different routing in Southfields avoiding the trees.
