TfL Consultaion on Colindale Bus Services
Please see the below, which was sent to me by TfL regarding some proposed changes to bus services to Colindale, though some have a wider effect.
We are proposing to make some changes to bus services in the Colindale area.
These include routes 125, 143, 303, 305 and 326.
Colindale and Burnt Oak is a large area of housing and office development
that is increasing demand for public transport in the area. It is included
in the London Plan of the Greater London Authority (GLA) as a growth area
with at least 12,000 new homes and 2,000 jobs to be provided. This
development is concentrated around Edgware Road, Colindale Station, Grahame
Park and Aerodrome Road. We are looking to develop the bus network to
respond to this.
What are we proposing?
We are proposing to extend route 125 from Finchley Central to Colindale
Station. It would add an extra bus every 12 minutes between these two
locations while reducing frequency across the existing route from every 10
minutes. As part of this we are also proposing to reroute 143 and 326 to run
eastbound directly via Hendon Lane and Regents Park Road at Finchley Central
to ensure routes 125, 143 and 326 share the same stops in this area.
Routes 303 and 305
We are also proposing to merge routes 303 and 305 to run between Edgware and
Kingsbury Circle via Mill Hill, Colindale and ASDA to run as route 303.
Subject to the outcome of consultation we would introduce these changes in
Routes 186, 204, 303 and N5 post 2020
We have a further set of proposals that we would like your views on,
although subject to the outcome of consultation, these would not happen
before 2020 due to the requirements for new infrastructure.
