The next meeting of London’s transport watchdog takes place on Tuesday 23 September with overcrowding and the future of three bendy bus routes expected to be major topics of discussion.
The London TravelWatch meeting will take place at 6 Middle St, London, EC1A 7JA, at 9.45 and is open to members public.
According to a statement issued by the body: “When London TravelWatch issued its manifesto for the new mayoral term earlier this year, ‘Room to Breathe’ was one of its key issues, and this meeting will examine congestion on trains, tubes and in the public realm. We will be hearing about managing capacity and crowding on National Rail and the Underground, as well as hearing about a scheme to ease congestion and enhance Oxford Circus for pedestrians.”
“We will also be looking at proposals on whether bus routes 38 (between Victoria and Clapton Pond), 521 (between Waterloo and London Bridge) and the 507 (between Waterloo and Victoria) should continue to use articulated (bendy) buses, or should be replaced by other buses.”
