Maps reveal bus changes during Putney Bridge closure starting this month
New maps reveal how people are expected to navigate the bus network when Putney Bridge closes this month.
The Grade II listed bridge is a major route over the River Thames and will close to all vehicles on Monday, July 14, as part of a £1.5m repair programme.
The maps, by Transport for London (TfL), show how buses will operate during the closure.
There will be a bus shuttle service on both sides of the bridge and passengers will have to cross on foot to get to another bus on the other side.
Passengers will only pay for one fare during the journey.
People with a travel card or concessionary cards, such as the Freedom Pass, will catch their buses as normal.
Anyone using an Oyster or contactless payment card can obtain transfer vouchers from a bus driver or transfer cards from dedicated members of staff.
Passengers who obtain a transfer card can use it multiple times throughout the closure.
During the works, the frequency of the Route 72 between Roehampton and Hammersmith will be increased.
Cyclists will be able to continue using the bridge, but they will need to dismount and wheel their bikes across.
