Unfortunately, this stop in York Way has been subject to a number of problems over the last year. These problems have been exacerbated by the need to move the bus shelter to ensure that it was fully accessible for all passengers. The shelter has now been moved and further work by BT is due to take place at the end of May. TfL are currently awaiting a completion date from BT and when this is forthcoming TfL will update you on progress when more information is available.
