Many constituents have complained that the additional bus services, put in to deal with the consequences of the closure of Hammersmith Bridge, are inadequate. What plans does TfL have to improve these bus services, especially during the rush hours?

Transport for London (TfL) is continually monitoring the situation in this area, and has already made changes to the bus network, such as extending bus route 419 to Roehampton.

TfL’s data from manual surveys and ticketing systems suggests that the current level of service provided is adequate for demand under usual traffic conditions, and there are no current plans to enhance bus services.

TfL will continue to keep this under review, and would be happy to discuss specific reports of crowding or gaps in service.
