Back in March last year I first asked the Mayor to look into overcrowding on the E8 after local residents and the Olde Hanwell Resident Association got in touch to say that there was a growing problem.
Despite the Mayor’s insistence a few months later that there wasn’t a problem, TfL after my urging have now come forward with plans to both extend the route toward Hounslow, as well as introduce a fleet of double decker buses.
The new route will also serve West Middlesex Hospital. The campaign for a direct bus between Ealing hospital and Northwick Park continues.
You can have your say on the new plans on TfL’s new consultation website: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/e8-110-h28#Route
London buses are the backbone of our transport network. With some parts of Ealing and Hillingdon being the worst connected parts of London because of the lack of rail or the underground, buses are absolutely vital to keep our communities connected.
