WISH LIST August 2012
Route 207 should be extended 2 stops westward to Lombardy Retail Park
Improve bus connections ready for Crossrail when it starts its services
Sunday services should in most cases be like other days as shops have now been opening on Sundays for over 20 years
There should be more limited stop services to reduce journey tmes for passengers.
There should be more orbital services so that passengers can do those journeys by bus which are currently easier by car.
Access to hospitals which still have A&E departments after the NHS reorganisation. (This may mean running services from towns in LBE to hospitals outside LBE)
service linking Southall with
A bus to run from Acton to the West End
Better advanced warning of diversions in Southall because of religious festivals
Better alternatives to E5 during diversions for religious festivals
Correct the following problems on route 120:
1. Southall tends to be busy well into the evening and there are lots
of returning commuters after 7.00pm but the peak service starts to wind down
2. At weekends, post midday, the traffic between Hounslow and Southall
rises sharply with shoppers and gurdwara-goers boosting the numbers
resulting in sever overcrowding.
3. The frequency of this route linking two major centres, Hounslow and
Southall, falls well below that of many other routes, eg E3, and this when
confounded by traffic congestion leads to a very hit and miss service along
the route. It is worth noting that once Ruislip Road is reached, and the 282
service follows the same route to Northolt, the passenger numbers fall away
sharply. EPTUG has advocated terminating the 120 service at Smiths Farm or
Grand Union Village for this reason.
