Proposal for a Permanent Coach Parking Bay on Albert Embankment

TfL statement:

“In February 2015 Transport for London (TfL) announced it would go ahead with its proposals for the East-West Cycle Superhighway (CSEW) – a segregated cycle route which would mean changes to the road layout on Victoria Embankment, including relocating coach parking away from Victoria Embankment.

On 27th May 2015, we introduced a temporary 45 metre off-peak coach parking bay on Albert Embankment, to replace some of the coach parking on Victoria Embankment that will be removed as part of the construction of the CSEW.  We chose Albert Embankment as one of the alternative sites because it has existing coach facilities and provides easy access to central London.

We propose to make this bay permanent due to the ongoing need for alternative coach parking.

The permanent bay would be in the same location as the existing temporary bay: within the northbound bus lane, outside Camelford House.  It would be 45 metres long to provide space for three large coaches.

It would operate in the following way:

Coaches would be allowed to park free of charge at all times except between 7am – 10am and 4pm – 8pm, Monday to Sunday

During operating times, coaches would be allowed to park for a maximum of one hour and would not be permitted to return within two hours

These operating times would ensure the bus lane is kept clear during the morning and evening rush hours and would be consistent with the operating times of the other parking bays on Albert Embankment.
