Question

A local group has raised this issue with me. The South Harrow bound Baptist Church bus stop in High Street Wealdstone has no shelter nor is any other shelter, for example a shop canopy, in the vicinity of the bus stop. This bus stop is widely used by older people who go to the Church or the Mosque at Whitefriars Avenue. The group has brought this to the Mayor and TfL's attention but to no avail; will you instruct TfL to investigate the issue as a matter of urgency please?

I know that Transport for London (TfL) is very keen to install a new shelter here for the reasons you describe. However, as TfL currently funds new bus shelters from its asset renewal budget, there is no available funding at this time.

As part of its next business plan later this year, TfL will consider bus shelter provision as part of a broader review of how it invests across all sustainable modes of transport, and will ensure that this shelter forms part of that consideration.
