Question

Can you explain why, although Richmond councillors were told that the extension of the 371 bus route to Kingston Hospital, operating from the new location of the Sainsbury's store at Manor Circus, would be introduced on 5 September 2009, it is now TfL's 'hope' to introduce the extension in April 2010?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The 5 September 2009 date referred to the original target date for extending route 371 to the Sainsbury's store at Manor Circus near Richmond. My answer to question 3306/2009 describes the position on this.

No diversion of route 371 to Kingston Hospital was or is planned. TfL has contacted your office to clarify the question on this point.
