If you have ever taken a bus through Brockley Road between 7.30am and 8.30am, and between 5pm to 7pm, you will be aware of how much this road sucks your life. It takes about 20 minutes to cross a half mile stretch of Brockley Road before the buses reach the bottleneck that is Brockley Cross.
But what about the bus lane? Shouldn't that help with moving buses along. It should in theory, and this is where Transport for London's utter incompetence and collective uselessness is highlighted for the world to see.

London is a growing city, but planners has been unwilling to invest in improving the infrastructure in parts of London that isn't north of the river. I love London, but if you think London has a world class transport system, I will tell you to go and visit any major European to experience what a properly integrated public transport system is like.
Well at least there's the train.
