50 years of lobbying for Turnham Green

Hounslow Council has again asked Transport for London again for a permanent stop at Turnham Green.

Next year will mark 50 years since the London Borough of Hounslow came into existence, the council says it has been lobbying for Turnham Green for most of that time.

They argue that there would also be benefits to residents in neighbouring boroughs such as Ealing and Richmond with Turnham Green becoming a local interchange.

Cllr Ed Mayne, cabinet member for community safety and regulatory services, said: “It’s been 50 years of hurt trying to improve the Piccadilly line and we can only hope TfL are now, at long last, ready to take notice and act. Introducing a permanent stop at Turnham Green would be the centre piece of a raft of urgently needed improvements. We want TfL to agree to at least trial the stop for 24 months and fully commit to a stop as part of the now long delayed proposed renewal of the line, now in planning stages for implementation early 2020s.”
