Question

I understand that TfL have agreed to extend the 307 bus route to Barnet General Hospital which is greatly welcomed. However, important health services have recently transferred from Enfield to Barnet General Hospital and many patients and relatives are extremely disappointed that this extension will only commence in October 2010. Could you please ensure that TfL extends this route much sooner - it is greatly needed?

TfL would be happy to extend the 307 to Barnet General Hospital from an earlier date. However, to do so requires additional bus terminating space at the Hospital; and finalising a design that is acceptable to all parties involved has taken longer than originally hoped. October 2010 is now a realistic date for reaching final agreement on the design and construction of this.
