Following a community campaign led by the Labour Party, Transport for London have confirmed that there will shortly be a shuttle bus running between Camberwell and Brixton, providing bus coverage for the period of closure of Coldharbour Lane.

Big thanks to Veronica Ball and Loughborough Junction Action Group for getting all the signatures on a petition, to all who wrote letters, and to Val Shawcross AM for lobbying at City Hall.

TfL have confirmed they will amend the bus stop notices.

I’ve copied below a map to show the routing the shuttle bus will take, relative to other services in the area. The shuttle will be numbered the 545 and will run between Brixton Station and Camberwell Green (it will operate ‘Not in Service’ on the ‘loop’ on Brixton Hill and Effra Road , and will terminate at Brixton rail and tube station). The 545 runs between 0430 and 0030 daily (including at the weekend), at a frequency of a bus every 12 minutes. They’re using 10.2m single deck, dual door buses to operate the service. The shuttle will operate until the works are concluded and Coldhabour Lane becomes available for normal bus operations.
