Tower Transit Picketts Lock Garage

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Transport for London,

Tower Transit, one of the bus operators within London was proposing to build a bus garage at Picketts Lock in the Borough of Enfield potentially supporting the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area in light of developments taking place with more additional busses added within the Opportunity Area

Could you answer on why this bus garage proposal did not go forward into not getting built?

Yours faithfully,

Sean Cirillo

at Picketts Lock.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of

that they wouldn’t progress.

Dear FOI,

Information to be requested :

1. From the Pickett's Lock Garage proposal, are Tower Transit planning to revive the scheme in the near future after the first application failed to go forward?

2. Within the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area developments taking place, are the existing bus garages on capacity to accommodate more services serving the opportunity area? If they are not are there plans or proposals to build a new garage within the opportunity area for additional capacity?

Yours sincerely,

Sean Cirillo

Dear Mr Cirillo

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1239-2122

 

Thank you for your further request received by Transport for London (TfL)
on 10 September 2021.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.  I can
confirm that we hold some of the information you require. You asked:

 

1. From the Pickett's Lock Garage proposal, are Tower Transit planning to
revive the scheme in the near future after the first application failed to
go forward?

 

We don’t hold this information. This is a strategic decision for Tower
Transit to take.

 

2. Within the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area developments taking place,
are the existing bus garages on capacity to accommodate more services
serving the opportunity area? If they are not are there plans or proposals
to build a new garage within the opportunity area for additional capacity?

 

Most routes could operate from more than one garage, as there are some 78
garages spread across the city. Having a spread of garage locations helps
us to maintain competition and operate the network efficiently. Buses are
the most used form of public transport, enabling new housing and access to
employment, health, education and leisure. As London recovers and grows we
forecast demand and service levels will increase and we will need more
garage space, including around the Lea Valley area and we are working with
operators and local authorities to ensure this need is reflected in their
planning.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
