Question

The bus stop in Torrington Park N12 going east from the High Road is too close to the junction. When buses stop, traffic cannot get either in or out of Torrington Road, causing a traffic jam, and pedestrians cannot cross safely at the corner either. Will you consider moving the bus stop a short distance further east in Torrington Road to resolve these problems?

TfL will discuss this with the London Borough of Barnet and will look at an appropriate location for installing a substantive bus stop or relocating the existing hail and ride publicity point on this section of the Torrington Park.

Bus route 383 operates along Torrington Park on a "hail-and-ride" basis, that is, there are no fixed stops and buses can pick up passengers at any safe place. TfL does, however, provide publicity points along such routes and these tend to be in places where passengers congregate to wait for buses.
