I have been pursuing casework with TfL since May this year about a LAS complaint regarding the yellow box outside their station at 1 New Cross Road. The ambulance staff complain that they are delayed, often by minutes, because of traffic standing illegally inside this yellow box, which is on a red route. So far there has been no follow up or enforcement action taken by TfL. How do you justify TfL's poor casework performance in this instance?

In May, TfL were asked to provide the London Ambulance Service (LAS) with a contact with whom they could discuss a yellow box junction. TfL duly provided this point of contact, but received no further word from LAS. TfL were informed about the specific issue with the box junction on 9 October, and as you know, confirmed to LAS that this is now being investigated. TfL has also asked LAS to confirm who they contacted, so that any delays in dealing with the issue can be investigated also. TfL will continue to keep you informed.
