OVEG have received encouraging news regarding bus routes 142 & 258. Watford’s MP Richard Harrington has told our Village Liaison Officer, Douglas McQuaid…
“I know how important both of these routes are for so many people locally. Many people use these two bus routes to get to work and school and so I want to clarify first of all that neither of these routes will be cancelled. I’m afraid that there has been some scaremongering at play here and so I wanted to let you know straight away that there is absolutely no danger of these two routes being cut.”
“Just to be clear, I have actually spoken to Hertfordshire County Council again this morning and there is absolutely no danger of our cross border services being cut. I have had it confirmed to me on numerous occasions that these services will be maintained and so I’m just disappointed that this scaremongering is continuing.”
“In addition to this, Cllr Derrick Ashley has said: “we have informed TfL that we are withdrawing our support and they have informed us that they have no plans to make any changes to any routes between London and Hertfordshire.”

The bus routes were due to be debated at HCC’s Environment and Transport Panel yesterday. As soon as we have any further information we’ll let you know…
