Bus shelter needs turning around

Reported via desktop in the Damage - other (bus stops and shelters) category anonymously at 10:01, Wednesday 7 April 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2657286.

Can this shelter PLEASE be turned around to protect waiting passengers from the blazing sun, As it is it doesn't provide any shelter whatsoever, I personally fainted in the heat at this shelter because there is no way of shielding from the sun whilst waiting for a bus. It needs to be turned around to provide protection. PLEASE?!!!!!

  • Sorry I must have pinpointed the wrong bus stop. Please see photos above showing the bus stop in question which provides no shelter this way round. The third picture shows how the sun (cloudy day but can see the sun) blazes straight down into the shelter on a warm/hot day. Bus stop J Elmers End Green. Please consider repositioning it the other way round to provide better shelter from the sun (and wind/rain).
