Transport for London (TfL) is aware that some local residents would like route 110 to be diverted via Whitton High Street. However, providing this diversion would mean the loss of the convenient link route 110 provides into Twickenham via Staines Road. This link is currently used by around 1,000 passengers per day, approximately 25 per cent of passengers on this route.

Passengers using route 110 who wish to travel to Whitton High Street can interchange onto route H22 at Hospital Bridge Road for free thanks to the Hopper fare I introduced last year.

TfL will continue to look for opportunities to improve bus services, and I would be very happy for an officer to meet with residents, the London Borough of Richmond and others to discuss whether changes could be made.
