The transport implications of potential developments in this area are being discussed between TfL and other relevant parties in the usual way. At the relevant time, these discussions will also include any funding arrangements, should additional funding be needed. However, at this stage it appears that significant extra demand for bus services from development in this area may not be realised until towards the end of the current TfL Business Plan period. TfL will continue to keep the position under review.
