Construction and maintenance work will result in a variety of bus throughout London being affected in June. Some closures within Central London have resulted in buses being diverted or running at a lesser frequency in order for the service to run efficiently.

The closure of Farringdon Street northbound will in particular affect journeys in the coming months.

The City of London Corporation has confirmed the closure is in place from Ludgate Circus to Charterhouse Street to allow gas main works to take place. Diversions and timetable changes are set to affect passengers until early September.

Along with these changes, TfL has also announced there will be longer waits for some buses. A temporary timetable on route 26 will widen the frequency of the service to a bus every 11 minutes during the daytime on Monday to Saturdays and to every 13 minutes during the evening and all day on Sundays.

This is also due to the gas main works in Farringdon Street as it's planned to give bus drivers more time to complete their journeys.

HS2 works on Kilburn High Road will result in route 32 buses being limited to every nine minutes during the daytime on Monday to Saturdays and every 13 minutes during the evening and all day on Sundays.

A host of other changes are being made to adjust to regular traffic trends, rather than in response to construction or maintenance works.

These are:

  • Route 110 will run every 20 minutes during both the daytime and evening on all days of the week.

  • Route 253 buses will run every eight minutes during the daytime and every 10 minutes during the evening on all days of the week.

  • Route 254 will run every eight minutes during the daytime and every 10 minutes during the evening on all days of the week.

  • Route E3 will have a new timetable on all days of the week with minor changes to times.

  • Route N253 will have a new timetable on all nights of the week with minor changes to times.
