Question

Following the introduction of the congestion charge, residents desperately need an additional bus service from Harlesden to North Kensington/Kensington without having to cross the Harrow Road at Ladbroke Grove Junction.

Residents have complained that the only way to reach North Kensington is by taking the no. 18 bus and changing to a 52 or 452 at Ladbroke Grove Junction. The residents have complained that this junction is very dangerous as there is no 'Green Man' on the traffic light and there is always traffic coming from some direction.

Residents have said as the pedestrian crossing is very dangerous, and needs to be look at, as with the new C Zone it will be more heavily used and currently is heavily used by school children.

The additional bus services have been routed to Kensal Rise Station ' 28 and no. 452 but the residents westwards towards Harlesden have been left out.

Will you now undertake to provide a suitable bus service for residents?
