ABSTRACT
London's first bus 'Super-Route,' designed to increase bus reliability and cut journey times, has been launched. Bus Route 32, running between Kilburn Park and Edgware station, has been designated London's first 'Super-Route' in a six-month experiment which could provide a model for bus transport improvements throughout London. Intensive enforcement of bus lane and parking restrictions keeps lanes congestion-free. The scheme should benefit all road users, since illegally parked vehicles obstruct the flow of traffic. Route 32 is part of the London Priority Bus Network, an initiative which has been introduced by the 33 London boroughs in partnership with London Transport Buses.
