We answered

TfL Ref: 2813-1819

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 23 January 2019 asking for information about any bus impact studies and service changes in relation to the possible relocation of Turing House School to Hospital Bridge Road, in Whitton, Twickenham.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 


Unfortunately we do not hold the information you have requested as yet. We have had discussions with Turing House School as part of the planning application process and the numbers of students proposed means that this will require improvements to bus services. The school numbers will grow over a few years.

However, as we have only just started looking at what services we will need to accommodate the demand once the school is full, we haven’t developed a service plan yet.  We will be looking at all the things suggested in point B below and we will be asking for a financial contribution.

There is a planning application with the London Borough of Richmond for the school but it hasn’t been approved as yet as far as we are aware. TfL is involved in the planning process as part of the GLA. The school hopes to open in September 2020 but this is dependent on when and if the planning permission is obtained. If the planning permission is given and the school opens in September 2020, we anticipate undertaking our detailed planning in Autumn/Winter 2019.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
