A major Lib Dem priority for Enfield is about to become a reality, after TFL finally confirmed the 456 bus route will begin in Enfield from Saturday 13th of March.
Enfield Lib Dems first called for a new bus route to improve the W10 bus route in 2018.
Enfield Lib Dem campaigner Guy Russo said:
"This is huge win for the people of Enfield!
I am delighted TFL have consulted, listened and implemented this route. Since 2018 I’ve been calling on TFL to implement a route that links Chase to more of Enfield and runs more frequently than four or five times a day.
This new route does exactly that, connecting Crews Hill and the north of Chase (one of the worst-connected parts of our borough) to Winchmore Hill, and running more services than the W10 did.
Going forward, it remains the case that Crews Hill station is not served by the route. I will keep asking for a solution to make sure London's northernmost rail station, where 100,000 journeys each year begin and end, is properly connected to the rest of the transport network.
I will always campaign for better routes in Chase and across Enfield. Enfield Liberal Democrats know that public transport is one of the best routes to a greener, fairer and thriving Enfield”
