100 bus issues – meet GLA member Unmesh Desai 10 am Monday 30th

By on October 26, 2017 in Infrastructure, Transport

Wapping residents worried about the 100 bus route can meet our GLA member Unmesh Desai and local Labour councillor Denise Jones outside Wapping Overground at 10 am Monday 30th October to voice their concerns.

Cllr. Jones has organised this meeting with Unmesh as a direct result of the news of further cuts by Transport for London (TfL) to the 100 bus service, which is a lifeline to many in Wapping.

Cllr. Denise Jones

Many thanks to Denise for organising this at such short notice and to Unmesh for coming to Wapping and listen to what people have to say.

So it would be good if as many people could turn up next Monday 30th October 10 am outside Wapping Station to express their views.

LW Comment

Wapping, as with many parts of London, is suffering increasing pressure from the amount of traffic on our roads.

It makes sense for Londoners to use public transport as much as possible and so very frustrating to find that the same public transport service is being cut in both reach and frequency.

Others have made the observation that because of the freeze on fares TfL is making cuts across its transport network, not just the 100 bus route in Wapping.

Wapping’s problem is that because of its location it is very dependent on the 100 bus and further cuts will cause major problems to everyone. We have repeatedly stated this fact so it is good to know that someone is coming to listen to us.

Thanks Unmesh and Denise!

    A particular problem this reduced bus service will pose for residents is access to Liverpool Street (via Shoreditch High st) and the District Line (Whitechapel) when (every other Weekend, currently) the Overground service stops at Shadwell due to CrossRail works. I have written to Unmesh to suggest TFL at the very least considers deferring the reduced Sunday bus service until the Crossrail disruption ends.
