Answer for Frequency of buses along Staverton Road

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Buses has been working closely with the London borough of Brent to find a solution acceptable to Brent's residents, bus users and in line with the borough's policies on local highway management. Consideration is being given to the provision of bus stops on Staverton Road itself in order to provide better access to the doctor's surgery as requested by some local residents. Brent are also considering management of local parking, junction modifications and other highway measures.Serious consideration has been given to rerouteing the number 6 bus, however, this would inconvenience many existing users of the service. .
