In your opinion is it reasonable that TfL has to wait for months for a spare part for the Sloane Square Tube Station escalator and that it does not have spares in storage ready for usage when required?

The delays here were outside Transport for London’s (TfL’s) control, with a long lead time to procure materials being exacerbated by the supplier moving its business abroad.

TfL is seeking to source an alternative supplier in the UK who can re-engineer and manufacture the parts, which will reduce the time taken to obtain replacement parts in future.
