Queen's Hospital in Romford is set to get improved bus services as part of the Mayor of London's plan to increase transport options for patients and staff.
The Number 5 bus, which runs between Barking and Romford market, will be rerouted to pass the hospital in Rom Valley Way.
Mayor Sadiq Khan announced the proposal today, and Queen’s will be one of the top priority hospitals – which hopefully will be delivered next year.
Mr Khan said: “Our bus services are lifelines to the tens of thousands of patients, staff and visitors who use them every single day to get to London’s hospitals.
“We’re committed to making these journeys as affordable, convenient and easy to make as possible, so that we can not only help existing passengers but also open up these services to help many more Londoners.
“We’re now working closely with hospitals and councils to deliver these improvements as soon as we possibly can.”
