Member of Parliament for Chelsea and Fulham, Greg Hands, has received a written update on Transport for London’s (TfL) proposed curtailment of the 424 bus route. This route currently runs right the way from Craven Cottage in Fulham to Putney High Street, providing a vital service for residents in Sands End and Peterborough Road.
The Mayor’s update came in response to the petition organised by Sands End ward Conservative councillors Rob Largan, Steve Hamilton, and Jane Law, who collected more than 2,000 signatures in less than a fortnight. The Mayor’s letter explains that Transport for London has not yet made any decisions about its proposals for the 424 bus route, and that the proposals would be subject to a full public consultation planned for the autumn. The Mayor encourages local residents to respond.
Nevertheless, when the consultation officially starts, Greg Hands will do everything he can to maximise the response from Fulham in an effort to prevent TfL’s proposed curtailment of the 424 bus route.
