Work starts on new East London Busway

News this week that construction has started on the East London Transit scheme, a rapid busway between Ilford and Dagenham Dock via Barking.

"The overall intention is to try and run ten buses an hour between Ilford and Dagenham Dock, taking in Barking town centre along the way. That puts the route in connection with the Hammersmith and City and District Underground lines, as well as National Rail at Ilford, Barking and Dagenham Dock. Sadly the abandonment of the Dagenham Dock extension means that an anticipated connection with the DLR will now not take place there."

The London Reconnections blog has the full story, including an artist's impression and map of the route.

this'll be a laugh

ilford lane isn't going to be segregated, where the traffic problem is.

the rest doesn't NEED to be segregated simply because there is no traffic down the backroads theyre using
