TfL are consulting on the removal of the much-used and popular No.19 bus route. Battersea residents desperately need this bus route to get across London and our Conservative team has collected thousands of signatures supporting our petition to save the No.19 bus. Conservative parliamentary candidate for Battersea, Cllr Kim Caddy and St Marys Park ward Councillor, Melanie Hampton presented the petition at City hall and have met with TfL staff to explain why the route is so important. They have also invited the Mayor to meet with local residents to hear first-hand about their concerns and to try and persuade him not to scrap the route, but so far have not had a reply.
GLA candidate for Merton and Wandsworth, Cllr Louise Calland said “This bus route is incredibly popular with North Battersea residents and the proposed alternatives are already far too busy, will take too long and could be more expensive. The Mayor must listen to residents on this one.”
