Question

Further to Question 2014/2471 "On Aerodrome Road Colindale, there are bus stops for the eastbound carriageway in the middle of the road's length, but none in the middle opposite the central area of Beaufort Park on the westbound carriageway.  People have far too far to walk when travelling westbound, between stops. Why? And will you now provide stops for westbound travellers?" Your response being, "TfL is aware that there is an unusually long gap between westbound stops on Aerodrome Road. TfL has identified locations for an additional stop but when these have been put forward in the past, the Met Police has raised security concerns due to the proximity to their training centre. TfL will pursue the matter again with the local authority and the police to establish a mutually agreeable solution that best suits customer needs" As the Peel Centre usage has significantly reduced, and as many of the buildings have now been demolished, what objections can the police still have to additional bus stops?
