The request was refused by Transport for London.

Dear Transport for London,

Please provide me with any reports, policies, expert advice, meeting minutes, or management directives issued since January 2008 addressing how TfL bus routing policy might be affected by any pedestrianisation (permanent or otherwise) of Oxford Street.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Kearney

 

TfL Ref:  FOI-0521-1314 & FOI-0522-1314

 

Thank you for your emails received on 26 June 2013 asking for information
dating from April 2006 relating to collisions on Oxford Street and from
January 2008 relating to bus routing policy on Oxford Street.

 

Your requests have been considered under the requirements of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

 

We are not the highway authority for this stretch of public road. The
information that you have requested is not held in a single location or
created by a single business area. The information you have requested is
likely to be contained in a range of documents held by ourselves and our
contractors. This means that a substantial number of normal business
records would need to be reviewed to see if they included any relevant
information. Unfortunately, this would exceed the ‘appropriate limit’ of
£450 set by the Freedom of Information (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004.

 

Under section 12 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to comply with a
request if we estimate that the cost of determining whether we hold the
information, locating and retrieving it and extracting it from other
information would exceed the appropriate limit. This is calculated at £25
per hour for every hour spent on the activities described. If you can
narrow down your inquiry, we may be able to provide more specific
information. Please note that when considering whether the cost limit
applies, we will aggregate the costs of requests for similar information
received within any 60 working day period.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Graham Hurt
