On the assumption that you are referring to the bus stop on Prince Charles Drive in front of Brent Cross Shopping Centre, unfortunately, the answer is "no" as the footway is only 1.2 metres wide which is insufficient for even the narrowest shelter.

As I am sure you know, a major redevelopment of the area is planned which will, among other improvements, deliver a brand new bus station.  We will also take the opportunity to improve the public realm generally and, in particular to ensure we have the best possible facilities for bus passengers at all stops.
