Lib Dem GLA member and chair of the Greater London Authority’s Transport Committee, Lynne Featherstone, is calling on London Buses to look at providing a direct bus link between the centres of Highgate and Crouch End. Ms Featherstone says that the lack of a direct bus link between the two centres is a constant issue in her mailbag and has launched a local campaign to get London Buses to consider the issue.

Ms Featherstone says that such a service would fill in a significant ‘missing link’ in the local bus network. Many local people have mentioned their wish to see a direct bus service.The W5 service from Crouch End only takes passengers half way up the hill to Highgate before it heads for Archway.Similarly, taking the 210 from Highgate leaves you the other side of the hill from Crouch End.

Lynne Featherstone comments:

“I have written to the Head of Surface Transport at London Buses asking for this issue to be properly considered when local bus services are reviewed. This is a vital missing link in Haringey and I hope they will now respond.”
