Speed of buses entering Euston Square from Eversholt Street

Andrea Casalotti 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.

Transport for London did not have the information requested.

Dear Transport for London,

In February 2015, the Metropolitan Police carried out a follow-up survey of bus speeds entering Euston Square from Eversholt Street. The initial survey showed that the majority of bus drivers were breaking the speed limit. This prompted Camden Council to change the layout of the pavement, to induce lower speeds. The follow-up report was sent to you and to Camden Council.

Can you please reveal the content of the survey? Specifically can you tell me:

a. Has the speed of bus drivers decreased following the intervention of Camden Council?
b. What is the average speed recorded in the follow-up survey?
c. What is the 85th percentile?

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Casalotti

Dear FOI,

I am surprised you can't find the information because I have been told by the Metropolitan Police that they have sent you the report.

Given your inability to find this report, and reminding you of your duties according to Section 39 of RTA 88, and reminding that one of your employees was killed by a TfL bus at this location in Feb 2014, can you please tell me

1. Will you be introducing a new pedestrian phase in the traffic light cycle, as recommended by the Metropolitan Police?

2. What other measures will you be taking to improve the safety of this crossing?

Yours sincerely,

Andrea Casalotti
