Keep the 19 bus route in Battersea


The number 19 bus runs from Battersea Bridge Road to Finsbury Park and is a well-used route connecting thousands of people every day from the borough to central and north London.

Under proposals put forward by the Mayor the route will be changed so it only runs from Finsbury Park to Holborn where it will terminate.

    1. OK, but it's a bit unfair implying biased reporting just because you don't agree (as is your right) with what someone we featured is saying in their official capacity. Better perhaps to just say what you disagree with and why, or even better share facts you think might be relevant but missing. Thanks.

  1. A troy polical broadcast. Troies blaming everyone party from themselves. Stop troies spread they rubbish. Wandsworth concuil is troy and mayor is new labour so please read between the lines. Swtv should be ashamed of not having balance view and being a sound broad for troy party.

    1. Sorry you think the views of the bus users we spoke to are "rubbish". There's no shame at all in championing a cause that local people feel strongly about. Just like we did with the Wheatsheaf Pub which Sadiq Khan himself campaigned for (you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/FUxXPq4eyzE). We really don't care what party a champion belongs to if it's a worthy cause, and the only person disparaging or "blaming" other people here is you Alex.

  2. Absolutely the 414 needs to be Withdrawn between Maida Vale and Maida Hill. Diverted to Camden Town via St John's Wood Road, Wellington Road, Prince Albert Road, route 274 to Camden, Kentish Town Road and Camden Gardens. To link Putney and Fulham Road with Camden Town Camden Gardens where the old 88 stands. Send the 22 Withdrawn between Oxford Circus to Hyde Park Corner, Extended from the latter via 414 to Maida Hill the Chippenham or 19 Can Serve Piccadilly Circus to accompany 311 between Oxford Circus and Fulham Broadway So This is how I think TfL could deal with the Aldwych situation:6: Withdrawn between Trafalgar Square and Aldwych.9 / N9: extended from Aldwych to Liverpool Street via route 11. Rerouted between Hyde Park Corner and Trafalgar Square via route 52 to Victoria and route 11 to Trafalgar Square.11 / N11: Discontinued.87 / N87: withdrawn between Whitehall and Aldwych.withdrawn the revised 11 (with the 311 numbered 11). Extend the 87 to Liverpool Street, and the 91 to Victoria, as replacement. The 611: a new route running between Paddington Basin and Mortlake via the current 23 to North Wharf Road, Harrow Road, Bishop's Bridge Road, Eastbourne Terrace, via route 23 to Hammersmith and 209 to Mortlake. A night service will continue to Fulwell via route 33. The route will use double deckers.33: Night service discontinued.or 9 can use the 91's stand at Trafalgar Square. Just one more stand space needed – perhaps extend the 9 over Waterloo Bridge?So 11,211,311 and N11 🤔Dunno N311 Wembley Central / Ealing Broadway to Oxford CircusN97 to Wembley CentralN22 to AldwychOr Extend the 11 to Stratford City – Victoria Diverted to Warton Road via N205, It's a good idea leaving only night buses. 😉
