Question

Further to Question No: 2018/0253

Do you share my concern about air pollution around Golders Green Road NW11 and the northern end of North End Road? There are now so many buses and coaches that there is no room for them all in the bus station. Some bus drivers, both in and out of the bus station still run their engines while parked.  When snow stopped the 268 and 210 from going up North End Road, they were immobile, with engines running. The south bound bus stop in Golders Green Road already serves several bus lines. National Express coaches en-route for central London, now stop at this bus stop to drop off passengers, leaving their engines running whilst luggage is unloaded. This fills the bus shelter with fumes. Will you take steps to remind bus companies that engines should not be left running when the bus is stopped?

your response being:

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Will you now give a substantive response?
