A NEW bus service has been introduced through East London giving passengers a direct link from Stratford town centre to Homerton Hospital and Hackney.

A NEW bus service has been introduced through East London giving passengers a direct link from Stratford town centre to Homerton Hospital and Hackney.

The 425 from Stratford Broadway runs to Bow Church along Bow-road to Mile End station, then turns north into Grove-road, through Victoria Park and South Hackney, turning round at Clapton Pond.

It serves Well Street Market and the Homerton Hospital and runs every 12 to 15 minutes daytime and 20 minutes in the evenings, with more double-deckers being phased in over the next few weeks.

Another change is the 488 replacing part of the S2, which used to run from Stratford to Clapton Pond and has been withdrawn. The 488, instead, goes from Bromley-by-Bow Underground station to Clapton Pond every 12-15 minutes daytime, 20 minutes evenings.

This wasn't so popular with passengers from Bow and Old Ford who complained they were losing their direct link to Tesco's at Bromley-by-Bow with the loss of the S2.

The 488 leaves from the Underground station, on the other side of the six-lane dual carriageway from Tesco's which is the busy Blackwall Tunnel Approach road.

But there's better news for passengers south of the Bow-road with another route, the 276, being diverted along Fairfield-road, Parnell-road and Wansbeck-road, running every 10 minutes.
