- Off to London on Monday. Should we go?
Now I don’t know and I’m only guessing, but I reckon that driving a small black cab around the narrow snowbound streets of London, is somewhat more feasible than driving a large double-decker vehicle in similar conditions.Posted 9 years ago
I also suspect that they pose considerably less risks to pedestrians.
I have to agree with Gus there!
The roads here in the smarter end of town are an utter mess, as the gritters seem to be not enough to stop it from getting snowed up. Snowing pretty heavily again at the moment, meaning that there’s ice/slush etc.
Having driven a 4WD car through this last night, I can perfectly well say that I do not want to see any buses out on the roads in this, for the sake of drivers, passengers and pedestrians/other road users alike!Posted 9 years ago
I agree, buses should be withdrawn altogether. As someone who once drove for a living in London, it was fantastic when they all went on strike. The roads were clear!
TFL should give warning when services are going to be suspended and ensure passengers aren’t left stranded. They should have an action plan for snowy condidtions. If Councils and TFL had a joined up plan this would not be necessary. (the councils didn’t grit key areas which is why TFL withdrwe the service). Like they didn’t have days of warning that this bad weather was on the way!
Councils come from the same mould as TFL. Commercially unfocused! Did you hear that Camden council shut their parks “due to health and safety reasons”. WTF!?
I did my DAS test so next time I get work in London, I won’t be dependent on TFL.Posted 9 years ago
