A map showing the places where a new express bus service will stop in Enfield borough has been published for the first time.

The so-called ‘Superloop’ bus service being launched by Transport for London (TfL) to help better connect outer London was first unveiled in March, but now more details have been revealed about which areas will be served by it.

The simplified orbital map originally published by TfL suggested only Arnos Grove and Edmonton would be served by the Superloop, but the new map of the North Finchley to Walthamstow leg of the service reveals that there are in fact four Enfield stops that will be provided; New Southgate Station, Arnos Grove Station, Gloucester Road (for North Middlesex Hospital) and Silver Street Station.

Although a public consultation on the North Finchley to Walthamstow route will not be launched until next spring, the public is now being invited to comment on the Harrow to North Finchley service.

The Superloop is described by TfL as a “game changing new network of limited stop express routes” which, when complete, will circle London and connect outer London town centres, hospitals, schools and transport hubs. It is being supported by £6m of additional funding provided by City Hall.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: “The Superloop is part of my plans to improve public transport in outer London. These new routes will substantially improve access to transport services, town centres and hospitals in outer London, and help build a better, greener London for everyone.

I’m so excited to be kicking off the Superloop journey with our new detailed maps. Londoners can see for themselves where the buses will be stopping and how the Superloop could benefit them.

I’m also pleased to be launching the first Superloop consultation with the new X183 route from Harrow to North Finchley. I encourage everyone in the local area to get involved and have their say.”

Geoff Hobbs, TfL’s director of public transport service planning, said:Public transport provides a vital service for everyone living in, working in and visiting the capital and buses play a fundamental role in that.Our proposals for an upgraded link between Harrow and North Finchley to better connect town centres and rail stations in northwest London. The new X183 route would provide a higher frequency of service for everyone travelling in the area, forming a key part of our game-changing Superloop proposals to make it even easier to travel in outer London.”  

Norman Baker, of Campaign for Better Transport, said: “The Superloop is an exciting development for outer London. It will bring faster, more frequent journeys to the places people most need to go, real integration with stations and other transport, cleaner air and a greener future for all.”
