Bus routes diverted as new Tube lines installed

Bus routes 30, 38, 56, 242, 277 & the 38 nightbus will be diverted while a new bridge is installed at Dalston Lane.

From Novemeber, one way eastbound only traffic from central London towards Hackney Central will operate on Dalston Lane, as the central section of the existing bridge is demolished and replaced with the new Tube service bridge. Westbound traffic towards Islington will be diverted onto Richmond Road via Queensbridge Road until January.

The final phase of works, from around January until May '09, 2 way traffic will be maintained, but with a reduced lane width.

Hackney finally joined the Tube network following a mamoth lobbying operation by Hackney's Mayor, Jules Pipe.
