Dear Transport for London,

Please provide me with the speed limits set in each bus station.

I have seen https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

But I understand that was not in your jurisdiction because it is private bus company.

My FOI is on bus stations operate by London Buses/TfL in your jurisdiction.

Yours faithfully,

Theresa Smith

Dear FOI,

Vauxhall Bus Station is 20 mph please investigate.

Yours sincerely,

Theresa Smith

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Theresa Smith

 

Please accept my apologies for the error in my previous reply. The table
below shows the bus stations we control and supervise on our network along
with the speed limits.

 

Locations can vary significantly in nature such as at Vauxhall where there
is linear layout with open highways on either side. All sites are risk
assessed to help us set appropriate limits for the type of bus operation
taking place. Some less busy or shared space locations such as Shepherds
Bush are considered to be bus stands.

 

 

Bus Stations Limit (mph)
North Finchley 10
Golders Green 10
Vauxhall 20
London Bridge 10
Canada Water 10
North Greenwich 10
Crystal Palace 10
West Croydon 10
Kingston Cromwell 10
Kingston Fairfield 10

 

I hope this clarifies the position, but please let me know if I can be of
any further assistance.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Graham Hurt
