Transport for London (TfL) already has one green roof bus shelter at Baker Street. It will be conducting a trial of a further five green roofs with the intention of increasing biodiversity at key locations by planting bee-friendly flowers in early spring.
Existing bus shelters were not originally designed to carry the additional weight of a green roof and will need to be reinforced. Through TfL’s longer term bus shelter renewal programme consideration will be given to new designs that incorporate green roofs into the structure. The results of the trial will be evaluated before a decision is made on a further roll out.
