Answered By: 
The Mayor

The bus stop was moved to its current location in front of the church in October 2012 to enable developer construction work to take place. At the time it was expected that the stop would be returned to its old site when the building works were completed. Due to the siting of a service entrance to the new development this is now not possible and the bus stop will stay where it is. Subject to the usual surveys and consultations, TfL will install a new shelter. This should be in place by the end of October.
