The residents of Elgin Crescent and Kensington Park Road are very concerned with the number of bus routes using these two narrow residential roads. At present there are 3 routes, with buses passing every minute. The introduction of bus route 452 in November last year has added to the severe congestion and unacceptable levels of noise and vibration as buses cannot pass in opposite directions, in some cases causing complete gridlock.
I am informed that residents met with TfL in April this year and presented them with well-researched evidence and alternative solutions and routes, which were also supported by councillors on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Despite promising to consider their presentation and come back with a response, the reaction from TfL has been complete silence.
Will the Mayor ensure that TfL contact the representatives of local residents with whom they met in order to deliver the promised response?
