Please can you confirm whether there are any planned works by TfL to provide seating and rain cover at these two bus stops (Cowbridge Lane and Cowbridge Lane (SB)), which are used by a number of older attendees of Gurdwara Singh Sabha London East, or if not, whether such works can be undertaken and when?

Transport for London (TfL) and I do appreciate the benefits of bus shelters for our customers.

However, certain criteria need to be met for a shelter to be installed, which these locations on Cowbridge Lane unfortunately do not meet.

Cowbridge Lane northbound is the penultimate stop for route 368 and has a very low number of boarding passengers.

On the southbound side there are only around 50 passengers a day and a significant number of underground utilities in the area, which mean a shelter cannot be installed without a significant amount of disruptive work.
