1:10pm Sunday 21st September 2008 in News
A LABOUR MP is "delighted" at plans to extend a bus route in Eltham after years of campaigning.
Eltham MP Clive Efford has welcomed the decision by Transport for London (TfL) to extend the 132 bus service to provide a direct route from Eltham to North Greenwich.
Mr Efford said: "Hundreds of people have contacted me over the years to express their dissatisfaction with public transport links to North Greenwich "I am delighted and I have been pushing for the introduction of a route like this for years.
"Accessing the 02 and shops on the Greenwich peninsular has meant a bus journey that could take up to an hour. Now we will have a direct service."
The new service is planned to start in January.
