Residents of some Enfield wards - I'm looking at you, Palmers Green councillors! - would be grateful if they had more than a few hours notice of upcoming ward forums, while minutes of previous meetings would be looked upon as a wholly unrealistic luxury, but the Winchmore Hill ward forum has always been exemplary in both respects. This week it has outdone itself by publishing not one, but two versions of the minutes of its most recent meeting, on 4th November.

Enfield Council is proposing to extend the operating hours of the northbound bus lane in Green Lanes just south of the North Circular Road so that it is in force from 7am to 7pm seven days of the week, rather than, as now, in the Monday to Friday evening peak only (4pm to 7pm). Only two parking spaces will be available (in the inset bay next to Zourtos butcher's shop), but the council say there is enough parking available on side streets to compensate.

A campaign against reductions in bus services in London has been launched by the London TravelWatch Bus Alliance, with as lead organisation London TravelWatch, the official watchdog organisation representing the interests of transport users in and around the capital.

Take a virtual ride in the driver's seat along the new 456 bus route, which starts on 13th March, running from the North Middlesex Hospital in the south to Crews Hill in the north via Silver Street, Firs Lane, Farm Road, Station Road, Winchmore Hill Green, Worlds End, Enfield Town and Willow Road.

From 18th January W8 and W9 buses will be terminating at and starting from a new bus stop adjacent to the new Chase Farm hospital building.

Following a recent Supreme Court ruling on the wheelchair priority space on buses, Transport for London have released a new guide for drivers and will be hosting several Accessibility Bus Driver Forums, to which users of wheelchairs or mobility scooters are invited. The event on 14th December will be held at Palmers Green Bus Garage (off Green Lanes, just north of the North Circular Road).

A recently published article by "Bus Driver U" describes what the author sees as serious safety failings in the way that bus services are regulated by TfL and run by bus operators. The article includes a link to another describing a campaign for safer bus operations in London launched by an American businessman who was the victim of near-fatal collision on Oxford Street.
The anonymous driver's article - Bus Driver Fatigue—A TfL-Contracted Killer on London’s Roads? - is.......

As part of the Cycle Enfield works, resurfacing of Green Lanes at and near the junction with Station Road and Fords Grove will be carried out overnight for four nights starting on Monday 10th April. Buses 329 and N29 will be diverted away from Winchmore Hill between 8pm and 5am.
The section that will not be covered is likely to be between Bush Hill Parade ("Church Street" bus stop) and the Green Lanes/Hedge Lane/Bourne Hill junction in Palmers Green.

25 March 2016
As of Tuesday 29th March there will be a new regular bus service connecting Cockfosters Station with Luton, via Potters Bar, Hatfield, Wheathampstead and Dunstable.
The new connections come about as the result of changes to an existing bus route, the 610, run by UNO, a company set up primarily to serve the University of Hertfordshire, but whose services are available to everyone.
As previously, a few peak hour buses will operate to and from Enfield Town, but they will now be routed via.......

I have previously expressed concern about the effects of changes along the A105 on bus travel. This didn't seem to me to be being properly considered in what is still predominantly a debate between cyclists and those concerned about car parking.
It has taken some time to get a response from TfL to what seemed to be three key issues; the potential effects on bus journey times, getting on and off buses, and the removal of the bus stop outside the Fox.
Well here's the response. The sections in.......

Transport for London are proposing to introduce additional night bus services from September, including some which would provide new east-west connectivity between locations in north London. The changes are planned so that travellers on Night Tube services will be able to travel on from tube stations to other destinations.
Routes 34 (Walthamstow-Edmonton-Palmers Green-Whetstone-Barnet) and 123 (Ilford-Walthamstow-Tottenham-Wood Green) would both run at half-hourly intervals throughout.......

The Enfield Transport Users Group (ETUG) has expressed its disappointment about the delay on the part of Transport for London (TfL) in responding to an integrated package of bus route changes drawn up by ETUG on behalf of Enfield Council.
Enfield Council submitted the proposals set out in the Enfield Bus Review at the end of 2013. The Review recommended changes to 29 bus routes running wholly or largely within the borough, aimed at achieving a number of objectives without increasing the.......

The owners of Palmers Green bus garage, Arriva London ("a DB Company" - ie owned by the German state railways), have applied for planning permission to demolish two buildings next to the garage (to its east) and use the land as an open-air bus park. However, there are no plans to expand the number of buses which are housed at the garage - the maximum number will remain at 69. This number of buses is in fact rather too many for the size of the building, meaning that manoeuvring of buses.......

A list of proposed bus service changes, several of which would affect Palmers Green, was presented to Transport for London a year ago, but to date there has been no indication that any of the proposals will be implemented. A public meeting on 22nd January may shed some light on the situation.
