Question

I am deeply disappointed that TfL have not agreed to meet with residents and that you are not prepared to produce an action plan to address the abysmal performance of the 343 bus which we have been complaining about for years. What action has TfL taken since my last question on this subject? Will you ask them to meet with residents as requested?

Although TfL was unavailable to attend the Evolution Quarter Residents Association's meeting on Saturday 21 March, they have made contact with the Association and will attend a future meeting.

As I outlined in answer to your question 483/2009, changes were made to service control arrangements which were initially successful. However the performance of the service has deteriorated and TfL is working with the operator, Travel London, to determine what steps are required to address this matter.
