Just came across this democracy.walthamforest.gov.uk/documents/s50565/Appendix%201%20-%20Draft%20Plan%20of%20Proposals.pdf
Page 7 shows how the Walthamstow gyratory will be operating for the next 7/8 months while the bridge is being built on the gyratory.
Furthermore, I have heard rumours that the 'through' buses, i.e. 97 and 357 may not serve the bus station during this time and even possibly ever. Does anyone know anything about that? It would explain the mystery of these proposed 'better positioned bus stops'. The bus station widening is complete and so I guess we will find out soon enough.
I quote myself from a couple of years back. These changes are happening. The council really pushing hard for these changes and TfL just seem not to care to anymore about defending their services and just put out consultations with wording and reasoning that are ridiculous. I mean the below paragraph is the worse reasoning I have ever seen in a consultation:
However, the large numbers of buses combined with general traffic have led to concerns over queuing and wait times between the Hoe Street/Selborne Road and Walthamstow bus station junctions, as well as safety concerns about passengers exiting buses prematurely at the bus station junction.
What does this even mean? Literally, as someone mentioned, this is what will happen post the changes!
Bizarrely, of the three barrier entrances to WC, the most able to cope, will be the least used post these changes.
I still have not seen any official confirmation that the bus lane entrance will be removed, although, it almost certainly seems the case.
Just going through the consultation questions which are so devious and tricking people into thinking changes are better. Reasonings that are not true. Fortunately, TfL asked for feedback on quality of consultation.......
