I think it's a real shame that this isn't happening sooner rather than later -- north London gets the Crossrail, but south London doesn't even get half a tram.
Buses are so full to capacity that they routinely can't accept any more passengers halfway through the route.
I would submit that if the mayor is going to routinely delay rail improvements for this part of the city, he will need to consider bus rapid transit, which means giving buses REAL bus-only lanes (i.e. closing London Road
to all but bus traffic, etc.). Maybe having to take space from cars for buses -- with the associated ramifications for "smoothing" -- would make him change his mind.
