Resident's idea is just the ticket

A RESIDENT affected by the Old Lodge Lane roadworks has persuaded Tesco to run an extra shuttle bus for the community.

David Hooper thinks the replacement bus run by TfL is "pretty appalling" because it does not run often enough and is frequently five minutes late.

"I proposed to Tesco that they run a bus on May 31 and eventually we now have one," he said.

"I think the TfL service has been pretty appalling. If they had at least made it four buses an hour, residents could connect with the trains at Reedham Station. It's difficult for the elderly to walk from the station, across the road and then to another bus on the Brighton Road."

The Tesco bus is white and run by Coaches Etc. It will travel from Tesco in Purley to Godstone Road, up Higher Drive and down Burcott Road, then up Old Lodge Lane, turning around at Wattenden Primary School. It will then come back down to Bencombe Road before going back to Higher Drive and round to Tesco.
