Plans for Edmund Halley Way junction

Sam Crawford made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I understand from correspondence with TFL that they have been holding 'recent' discussions with the O2 and Greenwich Council about how to resolve the traffic situation around the O2 on an event night. It appears widely known that the junction at the northern end of Edmund Halley Way is a significant factor in the traffic problems, particularly for the buses.

I would like to request access to meeting minutes and documents that discuss potential resolutions for congestion at this junction.

Yours faithfully,

Sam Crawford

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Mr Crawford

 

TfL Ref: FOI-2486-1314

 

Thank you for your email which we received on 17 March 2014 asking for
information about Edmund Halley Way junction.

 

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

 

I would like to request access to meeting minutes and documents that
discuss potential resolutions for congestion at this junction.

 

Please find attached all relevant information we hold with regard to the
junction. Remainder of the attachments will follow in the next email.

 

Please note that while copies of the emails, drawings and reports were
disclosed to you, in accordance with our obligations under the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA) any personal data has been removed, as required
by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this
personal data would be a breach of the DPA, specifically the first
principle of the DPA which requires all processing of personal data to be
fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal
information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed
and we have not satisfied one of the conditions of Schedule 2 of the Data
Protection Act which would make the processing ‘fair’.

 

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute
exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest
favours use of the exemption.

 

Please note we are not alone in solving the Busway and junction design.
The developer, Knight Dragon, is the key stakeholder. Ultimately, it will
be their submission to the London Borough of Greenwich as the local
planning authority.  We would anticipate the Borough would also wish to
refer the submission for agreement with TfL.

 

Whilst this is the process, from a practical point of view, as the emails
and other correspondence demonstrate, we have been actively engaged with
Knight Dragon (and prior to this Quintain) and have included the Borough
when approached about options for the Busway and junction design.  

 

We understand however, that since Knight Dragon’s purchase of the site the
junction design is now currently “on hold”.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some 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
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
