West End urges an end to the "wall of red buses”

4 October 2012

West End retailers are preparing for a “battle” to convince London authorities to reduce the number of buses in the Capital.

Following last weeks unveiling of The New West End Company’s five year business plan and £25m investment, senior figures called on the Government to re-examine ways to reduce congestion in the Capital.

The Deputy Mayor of London for Business and Enterprise expressed concern stating that the changes were unnecessary and that the busy public transport was a sign of the retailers’ popularity and success.

The Company will lead a transport conference in November which will bring together experts to help inspire new ideas and investigate all possible options.

For several years now the transport planning has been dominated by the Olympics. So, with the Games out of the way we think its time that the Government and the local authorities consider all possible options to reduce congestion in the Capital.
