Question

I have previously asked questions on extending the 318 bus northwards into Winchmore Hill, Grange Park and Highlands Village and give one example below:

"My residents and I were sorely disappointed with TfL's decision to not extend route 318 for patients and their relatives in Winchmore Hill, Grange Park and Highlands Village to reach North Middlesex Hospital. At the moment residents have to pay in inconvenience, extra time and money of doing this journey to the hospital on two separate buses." Would TfL please look again at the feasibility of this extension or other routes that can serve this need, as residents in these areas still have difficulty getting to the North Middlesex Hospital by public transport?

TfL is currently reviewing this again as part of a wider exercise on access to healthcare in partnership with Enfield Council and should be in a position to discuss this with the council in early 2015. TfL would be happy to discuss this with you in more detail.
