Question

On Hammers Lane in Mill Hill, the Shakespeare Road stop for the 240 bus towards Edgware is currently suspended, but there is no temporary bus stop nearby. This means that bus users must either walk about 400 yards down Hammers Lane and into Dawes Lane for the next stop (Wise Lane) or back up a steep hill to the previous stop (The Three Hammers), which is a similar distance.  The lack of a temporary bus stop is particularly important because the normal bus stop is right outside the Marshall Estate, where many retired people live in sheltered accommodation provided by the Retail Trust charity. Will you provide a  temporary bus stop urgently?

TfL has reviewed the temporary bus stop provisions for route 240 during these roadworks (which are due to complete on 20 February). A temporary stop was installed at the location you suggested on 13 February.
