Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Complete inactivity at Crouch End most important bus stop for at least 24 hours. Nothing has changed here since I walked by yesterday. Why does a simple job take so long ?

And why did they need to close the entire bus stop just in order to move two paving flags to one side for a bit while they plugged in an electric cable?

A response on Twitter from one of our councillors. 

I believe the work is carried out between multiple parties: Trueform, UKPN and EDF. Looks like it is currently in between one party's part of the work and the next. We will keep an eye on it and follow up if the delays continue.

The adjective proactive can describe a person who gets things done. If you are proactive, you make things happen, instead of waiting for them to happen to you. https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/proactive

Hi Adrian,

Just for reference, I have worked with TfL proactively for a number of months on getting them to put this countdown timer back in for us despite them arguing about having no money, and that they are not replacing timers. As i'm sure TfL will attest they are likely doing it just to get me off their backs.

We may have had slow progress, and little progress, but we have had progress. Now that the electrics are connected up we are just awaiting the final contractor to schedule in the works to connect the screen.

Best, Luke.

Happily the job is flagged by TfL as an urgent one due to the importance of the stop.
