Question

Is it possible to route other buses than route 186  along  Aerodrome Road towards Colindale as at present the 186 turns right at the roundabout towards Mill Hill, and if not, why not? Can you also look at the siting of the 186  bus stop which has been moved  from  Cherry close, making interchange with route 204 difficult and if not, why not?

TfL recently met with council officers to discuss requirements for the Collindale area. A study will be undertaken over the next six months, which will evaluate how the network might develop including options for Aerodrome Road.

With regards to the siting of the 186 bus stop, works have been undertaken to re-align the road layout in Lanacre Avenue off of Grahame Park Way. The road has been re-aligned approximately 80 metres eastwards with stops re-located accordingly from the disused section of the original road, which is being redeveloped as part of a major housing development scheme in the Grahame Park Estate. Both routes 186 and 204 continue to serve the new stops, along with the 305 and N5, and this means that the interchange is retained.
