It was reported in the Romford Recorder, of 10th November 2006, that residents are complaining of drivers on the 256 route using the garages in Fairlop Close to urinate. Understandably, residents see this as disgusting and offensive. What measures are you taking to ensure drivers do not do this, and have you ensure that there are suitable facilities for drivers on this route?

I agree this is not acceptable, as does TfL. TfL has purchased land on Suttons Lane, Hornchurch with the intention of developing a well lit bus stand with toilet facilities. However, some further land is needed and TfL is in discussions with the local NHS trust to purchase the required extra land. Once available, TfL will submit a planning application to develop the site.
