HK Ash Grove - information by  Andrew Strachan
The W12 drivers changeover on Selborne Road - adjacent to the bus station - either side of the Road.
Up until a year or so ago - the changeover was Wanstead - Woodbine Place during the day - and evening breaks were taken at the garage - with buses being run in and out - clearly inefficient. Incidentally - a change to the garage run-in at HK and AE - was effected from 30/9 - whereby all CT and Arriva buses - from 1800-2359 enter the depot from Sheep Lane - ie the back door - and not via Ash Grove. This is to alleviate congestion.?
