Highlights of this route.

Bromley Road bus lane sign

We start on Bromley Road. Before turning left onto Whitefoot Lane there is a bus lane.

The blue sign tells us when the bus lane is in operation. If you are driving outside those hours then you should use the bus lane (unless there's an obstruction, turning right soon or overtaking).

For example, if the time is after 10:30am then you are allowed in the bus lane. Using the bus lane creates space and eases congestion.

But make sure that you read the sign correctly.

Whitefoot Lane.

Look out for the 20mph speed limit. This road has two lanes. But there is often parked cars in the left lane.

You should change lanes back to the left if there's space once you've overtaken the parked cars as this helps drivers behind overtake if they want to.

Plan ahead for more parked cars and change lanes to the right in plenty of time if needed. Remember your MSM routine and blind spot whenever changing lanes.

Mini-roundabout near Grove Park.

The road approaching this mini-roundabout will widen out. If you're turning left then make sure that you keep to the left as this will help drivers turn right next to you.

Straight after the roundabout is a bus lane. It has the same operational times as the bus lane above.
