London saw snow on Tuesday evening (28th) for the first time in October since 1934, causing problems for some of Arriva London’s bus routes.
The worst of the snow was in the out lying areas to the north of London where 3 routes had to be terminated short of their usual destination.
From about 9pm routes 313 and 298 were curtailed short of Potters Bar due to the dangerous road conditions caused by heavy snow and ice. Route 313 curtailed short at Junc 24 of the M25 roundabout and route 298 was curtailed at Cockfosters.
Route 184 was initially diverted en route to Chesterfield Road from Barnet Church but as the road conditions deteriorated the service was curtailed into Barnet Church.
Operating manager for route control, Mick Gillroy said: “A number of route controllers attended the locations to take control of the situation and ensure that our passengers and drivers were not put at risk. They also helped to keep everyone informed of the situation”.
The Arriva London routes in central and south London faired better with minimal disruption.

We currently have a vacancy for an Assistant Health, Safety and Environmental Manager.
Last week, we were delighted to welcome Michelle Salter and Donna Prendergast from the Sickle Cell Society to our Brixton garage, to meet with some of the givers and also record a few words about what the Payroll Givers' generosity means to their charity.
We provide a well-established, structured training programme, a mentor, regular reviews, lots of support and training in several bus garages to maximise what you can learn, and people who care and want our apprentices to succeed.
We have the ambition to become the mobility partner of choice, preferred by our passengers, partners and clients. Having a diverse, talented and motivated workforce is key to achieving that ambition.
We are always looking at ways to improve our green credentials and a recent initiative, part of our Destination Green programme across the business, at our North London Palmers Green garage is another illustration of this process.
