A brand new bus route is being introduced to ensure that residents around the Ravensbury area keep their link to Morden Tube Station while the 118 route is on diversion. The new 718 route will run between Morden Station and Rose Hill Roundabout via London Road, Morden Hall Road, Wandle Road and Bishopsford Road from Saturday 30 November.
The new route has been created by Merton Council and Transport for London (TfL) to minimise travel disruption while repairs are made to the Bishopsford Road Bridge. The seven-day-a-week service will run every 30 minutes (every 35 minutes during weekday peak times) starting at 5am, with the last service departing at 0.30am. Buses will stop at all route 118 bus stops between Morden Tube Station and Wandle Road and all route 280 bus stops between Wandle Road and Rose Hill Roundabout.
