The all-new Superloop SL2 route will stop in five busy London locations, including North Greenwich.

Transport for London has announced a new Superloop route which will be introduced by spring next year.

The SL2 will run between Walthamstow Central and North Woolwich with new stops to better serve North Woolwich, Beckton and Gallions Reach.

The Superloop is a part of the Mayor of London’s plans to improving the bus network in outer London.

The new express route, SL2, will run between Walthamstow Central and North Woolwich via Ilford and Barking as proposed in the public consultation.

Additional stops will be reintroduced at the A1020 junction with Armada Way near Gallion's Reach Shopping Centre in Beckton at existing bus laybys immediately south of the existing pedestrian/cycle crossing.

This is following feedback for better connections around North Woolwich, Beckton and Gallions Reach.

The SL2 will run every 12 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 15 minutes on evenings and Sundays, running alongside part of 123 bus route between Walthamstow and Ilford. TfL has also announced another Superloop route, the SL3, which will run between Thamesmead and Bromley.

All routes together would add over 4 million extra bus kilometres per annum to the bus network, according to the TfL website.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "The Superloop will be a gamechanger for travel around outer London, delivering quicker links to transport hubs, town centres, schools and hospitals.

"I am delighted that following public consultation, TfL has today confirmed it will introduce two Superloop routes by spring 2024 - the SL2, which will connect Walthamstow Central and North Woolwich, and the SL3, which will connect Thamesmead and Bromley.

"It was great to see Londoners showing their support for these new routes through the consultation and sharing my excitement about the benefits these new services will bring by providing Londoners with more alternatives to private car use, and helping us to build a better, greener London for everyone."
