Answered By:

TfL changed the schedule in September 2014 to reduce expected impacts from high levels of congestion. The changes allowed buses more time to complete their journey, while roadworks were taking place at Wood Green and Tottenham Hale. The changes were successful in reducing expected impacts. It is expected that the service will continue to suffer some impact from other works, including resurfacing works and the introduction of Mini Holland schemes, and so the temporary timetables will be kept in place at present.  A review of the suitability of the current scheme will take place later this year.
