New routes for Westfield

316  TfL has announced two new bus routes to serve Westfield London when it opens in October.

Transport for London (TfL) has unveiled plans fo the new route 288, and for the extension of the existing 316 route prior to a public consultation.

The proposed 288 route would operate between Central Middlesex Hospital in Park Royal, and Elgin Avenue in Maida Vale, running through White City, Ladbroke and Harrow Road.

The 316 route, which currently operates between Cricklewood (Edgware Road) and St. Charles’ Hospital in North Kensington, is to be extended from St. Charles’ Hospital to White City, along St. Mark’s Road and St. Ann’s Road.

TfL says the extension will provide a high frequency link between North Kensington and the areas around Latimer Road and White City, as well as providing links from Queen’s Park, Kilburn High Road, Brondesbury and Cricklewood.

It is envisaged that both routes will use single-deck buses and provide new bus links to White City and the new Westfield development in Shepherd’s Bush.

Leaflets with details of the proposals will be sent to around 30,000 local residents, including those living in and around the White City and Ladbroke Grove roads to be served by the proposed changes.

The consultation period runs from 26 May until 11 July
