After consultation with residents and local councillors Transport for London has announced the 59 bus will run more frequently.
In a letter to councillors TfL confirmed that the frequency of the bus on Monday to Saturday will increase from every eight minutes to every six-seven minutes. During peak morning times the frequency of north-bound buses will be every five minutes.
Labour councillors in Kennington have welcomed the improvement. 'It has been virtually impossible to board a bus at peak times on Kennington Road for too long. Hopefully this improvement will go some way to addressing the problem' said Councillor Mark Harrison.
