Transport for London (TfL) consultation on proposed changes to bus routes 125, 303 and 305

This consultation has now closed.

Transport for London (TfL) are proposing to make some changes to bus services in the Colindale area. These include routes 125, 143, 303, 305 and 326 and are seeking residents’ views on these proposals.

Background

Transport for London (TfL) are proposing to make some changes to bus services in the Colindale area. These include routes 125, 143, 303, 305 and 326.

Colindale and Burnt Oak is a large area of housing and office development that is increasing demand for public transport in the area. It is included in the London Plan of the Greater London Authority (GLA) as a growth area with at least 12,000 new homes and 2,000 jobs to be provided. This development is concentrated around Edgware Road, Colindale Station, Grahame Park and Aerodrome Road. TfL are looking to develop the bus network to respond to this.

What is proposed?

Route 125

TfL are proposing to extend route 125 from Finchley Central to Colindale Station. It would add an extra bus every 12 minutes between these two locations while reducing frequency across the existing route from every 10 minutes. As part of this they are also proposing to reroute 143 and 326 to run eastbound directly via Hendon Lane and Regents Park Road at Finchley Central to ensure routes 125, 143 and 326 share the same stops in this area.

Routes 303 and 305

TfL are also proposing to merge routes 303 and 305 to run between Edgware and Kingsbury Circle via Mill Hill, Colindale and ASDA to run as route 303.

Subject to the outcome of consultation they would introduce these changes in summer 2018.

Routes 186, 204, 303 and N5 post 2020

TfL have a further set of proposals that they would like your views on, although subject to the outcome of consultation, these would not happen before 2020 due to the requirements for new infrastructure.
