Question

I have been contacted by a constituent regarding the Route 395, which travels between Greenford Station and Harrow (St Georges Centre). There is a need to provide direct access from northern part of Ealing to Northwick Park Hospital. A number of organisations including Harrow Council have asked for the Route 395 to be extended to Northwick Park Hospital. I'm sure that improved access to this hospital would be welcomed by the Travel Advisory Group for North West London NHS. Will you instruct TfL to provide direct access from Northern part of Ealing to Northwick Park Hospital?

TfL has recently reviewed such a proposed extension. There are already over 30 buses per hour linking the hospital and Harrow town centre for interchange with route 395, and therefore it was concluded that such an extension would not be a good use of resources.

TfL is a member of the NHS North West London Travel Advisory Group which is working to understand the transport implications of health service re-organisation in this part of London.
