What steps have/are TfL taking to make sure the 456 Bus is able to terminate at or near to Crews Hill station? This would improve connectivity and make a more suitable location than the current situation where the bus terminates and turns round on a residential street, causing noise and inconvenience to local residents.

New route 456 has significantly improved access to public transport for households in the Rosewood Drive area, whose residents would otherwise no longer have direct access to public transport. An extension to Crews Hill Station, while retaining a service to the Rosewood Drive area, would be costly, and there is currently no space for buses to stand and turn at the station without causing adverse safety impacts from reversing, despite lengthy discussions between the London Borough of Enfield and the train operator.

However, Transport for London will review options to extend the service following 12 months of operation, when travel patterns are established and running times are stable.
