Answered By: 
The Mayor

The shortening of route 7 to Oxford Circus was implemented as a temporary measure to help mitigate against the Crossrail works at Tottenham Court Road, which has been compensated by the extension of route 98 to Russell Square over the same routing. TfL is keeping the changes under review.
