Success for Go-Ahead

Nine south London routes retained, one gained from Stagecoach


The new singledeckers already introduced to route 424 include Wright StreetLite WF WS85 (SK17 HKE).

Recent tendered service awards have seen Go-Ahead London retain nine south London routes and gain another from Stagecoach Selkent. The double-deckers currently used on route 171 (Hither Green-Holborn) will move over to route 37 (Putney Heath-Peckham), while route 87 (Wandsworth-Aldwych) will receive six new hybrid double-deckers to augment the current allocation to the route.

The 386 (Woolwich-Blackheath), which Selkent has operated by from Plumstead garage since it was introduced in 1991, will move to Go-Ahead London Central next June. Eight of the single-deckers to be used will come from the current allocation of route 299 (Cockfosters-Muswell Hill), which passes to Sullivan Buses on 3 February. The balance of the allocation has yet to be confirmed.
