Local MP gets top TfL boss to look at bus to new hospital

Presenting back the bus cards to Mr Hendy

Local MP Lynne Featherstone has this week secured a promise of personal intervention from the top Transport for London boss over transport links to Hornsey Hospital.

At the successful meeting on Tuesday with London Transport Commissioner Peter Hendy, the Hornsey and Wood Green MP presented hundreds of ‘back the bus’ post cards signed by local residents in support of the Liberal Democrat campaign to improve local bus links to the site.

The Commissioner has agreed to arrange a meeting between himself, Lynne and local health service bosses to look at how the transport needs to the new Park Road health centre can be met.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“I’m delighted that TfL has recognised the need for better transport to the new hospital. With such wonderful new facilities it’s a real shame that the question of how to get there has been overlooked for so long.

“Now Haringey health service and Transport for London have got to come up with the goods.

“I just want to add a huge thank you to all local residents who took the time to ‘back the bus’ – I look forward to seeing Transport for London and the local NHS getting stuck into discussing real transport options so we can get the right bus service for local people.”
