Former Garages

Battersea (BA)

History

The original Battersea garage was opened in 1906 by the London Roadcar Company on the north side of Hester Road, but by 1914 more space was needed and an annex was built on the south side. Two modernisation schemes were undertaken, first in the 1960s to allow for Routemasters to be allocated and again in 1971 when a new canteen and recreation room was built. The garage was always small in size.

In 1985, the garage was closed for London Transport services with the allocations split between Vicoria and Wandsworth garages, with part of the coaches and the Sightseeing vehicles remaining at the garage.

In 1988, all the coaches and the Sightseeing vehicles transferred to Wandsworth garage, with no vehicles at the garage at that point in time.

In 1993, a yard adjacent to the old garage was opened as a base for Kentish Bus route 19 operation after it had moved out of its Covent Garden Market base.

Most of the area formally occupied on both the North and South sides of Hester road has now been built into a luxury flats complex. The only section remaining is the small shed which was originally an outstation from BN housing the route 19 RMs.

When the Routemasters finally left in July 2005 the garage received an allocation on VLAs for route 19, although some of these need to be parked at (and use drivers from) Norwood Garage because there is not enough space at Battersea for the larger VLAs. The VLAs were "borrowed" from Brixton Garage and used as an interim measure until new buses arrived. Most buses were stored from Norwood (N) garage, with most drivers from Brixton (BN), but some still were Battersea's buses, including those parked at Norwood (N) garage, and most buses were ran from there.

On 28 November 2009, the garage was closed down, with the full allocation of route 19 transferred to Norwood (N) garage.
