Asked Of: 
The Mayor


I have been in correspondence for some time with local residents and councillors regarding the issue of coach parking in Stamford Street, SE1. The residents have asked me to put the following question to TfL, via yourself:

'Now that the London Nautical School no longer requires Anderson's coaches to stop at Stamford Street, will you revert the extended bus cages on either side of the road to the original positions they were in 24 months ago, to accommodate one bus only as there is only one bus service along this route? The ideal outcome is to have the bus stops reduced back to their previous length to reduce pollution, anti-social behaviour and disturbance to residents.'

I have asked TfL to consider the concerns raised by your local residents and councillors, regarding the impact of the extended bus cages in Stamford Street on pollution, anti-social behaviour and disturbances. TfL will investigate the usage of these bays by buses and coaches and consider the potential for returning the Stamford Street bus cages to their original size, pending their findings.
