Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2991131.
The position of this bus stop in the middle of the pavement rather than against the back of the fence means there is very little space to pass. This is compounded by the damaged fence and often broken glass or other litter due to lack of any bin. I often see people struggling to pass including those in wheelchairs. Frankly it is not accessible and I'm surprised if it meats regulations for such. Ideally, the placement of the bus stop shelter should be moved against the fence. At a minimum the fence itself should be repaired and better provision made for the litter such as a bin and regular cleaning. Aside from the access difficulties, this stop is also reguarly an eye sore in terms of litter. Thanks
Bus timetable is too infrequent during the morning (school) rush hour (07.30 - 08.30). With only one bus every 30 mins does not provide the many children (who use the stop) with enough alternative buses. Many of the schools are quite a substantial walk from the station; and therefore greatly rely upon the bus.
