The Mayor


Ladbroke grove is frequently used by 'Out of Service' buses despite TfL's arrangement with Kensington & Chelsea council that it would not be used for these purposes. Can the Mayor assure residents that TfL will enforce better control over its operators in this area, and that residents will not be disturbed by 'out of service' buses unnecessarily travelling through this residential area?

TfL has asked operators to avoid use of Ladbroke Grove by out-of-service buses whenever possible and operators have issued details of alternative routes which should be used to their drivers.

However there are occasions when it will be necessary for out-of-service buses to use Ladbroke Grove, for example if there is disruption on the alternative route.

TfL has reminded operators of the arrangements in place.
