Same old problems persist

Poor parking caused buses to stop picking up and dropping off passengers in Greenwich last night.

This was on a major street running past Greenwich station – where enforcement would be expected to be reasonably high.

After many years of poor enforcement Greenwich Council managed to hire 10 extra staff (after earlier claiming they couldn’t find any suitable applicant) yet there appears some way to go.

Evenings and weekends can still seem a free-for-all in some places. This area has apparently seen minimal enforcement for years. Add it to Plumstead, and Abbey Wood, and Charlton and, well, you get the drift.

It’s ironically in a Low Emission Neighborhood (LEN) area that is supposed to encourage public transport use.
