Question

Concrete balls (presumably in the name of art?) have been placed in front of bus stops near Westfield shopping centre in Shepherds Bush located just at the point where the bus doors stop, clearly preventing the use of a ramp. This is an obvious danger for disabled passengers attempting to use the bus service. Who is responsible for placing the balls there and why and when will they be removed?

TfL had no involvement in their placement or knowledge of who placed them there. It is liaising with borough officers and Westfield site management to ensure they are moved without delay and not placed in the immediate vicinity of bus stops again.
