Queen Mary's Hospital Roehampton, SW15, will be reopening very shortly. As transport links are very poor there is an urgent need for extra bus routes serving the hospital. Please would you see that TfL addresses this?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Queen Mary's Hospital is served by 3 bus services: · Route 72 runs every 7.5 minutes during the day (30 minutes during the night). It links Roehampton, Barnes Station, Barnes itself, Hammersmith, Shepherd's Bush and East Acton. · Route 265 runs every 12 minutes during the day, giving links to Tolworth, Kingston Vale, Barnes Station, Putney and Putney Bridge Station. · Route 493 runs every 15 minutes during the day. It links Richmond, Sheen, Wimbledon and Tooting. TfL is not aware of any capacity issues in the vicinity of the Hospital. If there are specific links that you believe are required, TfL will be happy to examine whether these can be provided.
