463 bus extension to Pollards Hill

Locally one of the long-running issues has been the 463 bus and an extension to Pollards Hill. This was originally planned to be introduced back in 2003 but was deferred due to road access issues and people in the Eastfields area which is in a neighbouring ward protesting about the bus being diverted away from their area. Many in my area have long campaigned for the bus service as it would allow a direct link to the highly-successful Tramlink at Beddington Lane and also the ASDA supermarket which is used by a large number of people in my area.

Anyway, today I received an e-mail that Tfl are again looking at a proposal in conjunction with the new Eastfields Station to enable the bus to serve Pollards Hill. The bus service will also introduce a new service to Tamworth Lane area in my ward which currently has no bus service running down the road(this would involve consulting local residents). Unlike the previous proposal, it would also continue to serve the Eastfields area. Hopefully this time the 463 extension will be introduced and along with the new station it would significantly improve transport access to the Pollards Hill area.
