Further to Question No 2014/5169

With the ever-growing increase in the local population in Colindale adding a huge burden to the only direct transport link to central London, namely the tube and as there is  no foreseeable prospect of the tube station capacity being increased,  will  TFL introduce a daytime bus service serving Colindale that links directly to central London?

your response being

TfL is in regular contact with Barnet Council about developments in the area, including the major regeneration of Grahame Park. 

There are plans to support this in a range of ways, including increasing bus capacity and connectivity.  A review of potential requirements is taking place and will be discussed with the council in early 2015. 

Has the discussion with the council taken place yet; if not for when is it scheduled; and when will the review be completed?

your response being

TfL is due to meet with council officers in March to discuss requirements for the area. Officers will then compile a report setting out ways the network might develop to address these requirements which should be completed by mid-2015.  The report will then be used to support further discussion with stakeholders

has the meeting taken place  yet and with what outcome?
