Question

The Barking - Gospel Oak Line Users Group (BGOLUG) have been asking for the perforated steel panels along the front of the existing shelters to be replaced by glazing to make the shelters feel less claustrophobic for waiting passengers. Can you please ensure that this is properly considered?

TfL has already considered this request from BGOLUG very carefully and unfortunately it would not be cost effective to replace the panels in question. They remain fit for purpose, and removing them would risk damaging the frames, which would require the entire shelter to be replaced.
