TfL is proceeding as planned with changes to the route despite 50% of respondents being strongly opposed to them. As such please explain in detail what the purpose of the consultation was in this case.

Consultations provide Transport for London (TfL) with an opportunity to set out initial proposals to customers and hear their views on how they may be affected. This helps TfL to understand any issues that they may not have been aware of, understand in detail any specific concerns and objections, and allow people to make alternative suggestions as to how proposals could be implemented. By taking part in consultations, TfL’s customers and stakeholders can help shape or influence the decisions TfL make.

The key concern raised in the route 339 consultation related to increased traffic adversely affecting air quality, noise and safety. However, as part of the proposal, Monier Road will be restricted for use by pedestrians, cyclists and buses only. TfL expects this to address the main concerns received.

All consultation responses were considered prior to the decision to proceed. TfL’s responses to the points raised during the consultation are contained in a report available on its website: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/339-monier-road/user_uploads/route-339-monier-road-response-to-issues-raised.pdf
