P5 bus route to be returned to Lothian Road from April

Transport for London will be returning the P5 bus to its original route along Langton Road from April 2011.

Following a consultation about changing the route (detailed on Vassall View) TfL have decided to return the route of the bus to its original running prior to 2001.

From April it will run along Vassall Road, Langton Road, Lothian Road and then on to the Patmore Estate rather than the current route down Knatchbull Road (pictured). Lambeth will be working to install double yellow lines and other parking restrictions along the route to ensure that the bus is not held up by parked cars.
