I carried out a survey of residents in North Kensington and found that, of those who replied, 72% said they considered the level of public transport provision in the area to be insufficient. What plans have you to introduce a better level of provision in the area?

As has been noted previously, the North Kensington area is served by several high-frequency bus routes during the day and three night bus services. There have been a number of improvements to these services including increases in frequency during peak and off-peak periods, new low-floor double-deck buses on route 295, increasing capacity and improving accessibility, and enhanced supervision on three routes. There are no immediate plans for further alterations to these services.

The area is also bordered by the Hammersmith and City Line to the south. This would be subject to timetable improvements to improve reliability in September 2003 in addition to the ambience improvements involving cleaning of trains and updating automated announcements currently in progress and these are reaching completion.

TfL will be interested to see further details of the survey in terms of response rate, questions asked and issues raised, as London?wide analysis by TfL has not highlighted accessibility to the area as an issue. . .
