|Acton Green Bus Stand Set To Move?|
Consultation to begin this month on plans to redesign layout of 94 terminus
Consultation is set to begin this month on plans to redesign the layout of the 94 bus stand in Acton Green.
Southfield Ward Councillor Gary Malcolm said that Ealing Council is currently working with Transport for London to address anti-social and safety concerns raised about bus operations at the stand by nearby Chiswick residents.
He told ChiswickW4.com: "The consultation is due to start on or just after Friday 10th December. It will run until the New Year so that residents have more of a chance to give their views.
"The Council have agreed to extend the area of who will be consulted which should include Acton Green, the area immediately around the terminus and the area north of South Parade.
"The Council officers are recommending Option 3 and so will want to hear whether you are in favour of this option as well as the details of this option. Please do fill in the form when it arrives whether you are a user or the 94 bus or if you currently experience problems due to the noise from the current bus arrangements."
Option 3 involves the relocation of existing bus stops and stands and converting the road between Evershed Walk and Acton Lane into a one-way street with traffic flowing southbound. More detailsl can be found here or on Ealing Council's website here (see Minutes of Cabinet on 14/09/10 Item No 8 which includes diagrams and maps.)
The frequency of 94 buses, which run between Piccadilly Circus and Acton Green will remain the same, with 15 buses per hour along the route during the morning peak times and 14 buses per hour in the afternoon peak times.
20 new hybrid buses that are up to 60% quieter than diesel buses are to be introduced on the 94 route and will come into service by the end of this year.
