  • TfL expanding “bums on bus seats” sensor trial – IanVisits
    Reddit Spitalfields Life The Ladies who Bus Wanstead Meteo West Hampstead Life Last year TfL started a trial of a technology that can tell people how many seats are available on the upper deck of a bus It ran on just the one bus on route 141 during the trial Now TfL has announced that it will be expanding the trial to an entire bus route although not the one used for the initial trial Bus passengers travelling on route 59 which runs between Kings Cross and Streatham Hill will also now be able to get on a bus glance at a screen and see if there are spare seats upstairs without having to pop up for a look It also confirms if there are two seats next to each other so that a couple can sit on the same bench rather than being separated or hoping that someone will take pity on their discomfort The system analyses information from the on board CCTV system and TfL said that the aim is to encourage people to go upstairs when seats are available rather than standing on the lower level and clogging up the doorways TfL said that route 59 has been identified as a busy route where crowding can be an issue making it an ideal test route for this trial Simon Reed TfL s Head of Technical Services Group said As we expand this trial we will be able to learn more about how it will work on a large scale and what kind of impact it will have on our passenger s experience Read more about the technology here Facebook 47 Google 4 Linkedin 0 Reddit 28 Twitter 0 0 79 bus tfl 4 thoughts on TfL expanding bums on bus seats sensor trial Long Branch Mike says

  • Unbuilt London: The almost story of a loop railway under Southwark – IanVisits
    trains from London Bridge dive down into a series of tube tunnels and loop under Southwark towards Charing Cross then back to London Bridge via the north side of the Thames Today the notion of replacing the six platforms at Charing Cross with a single tube station would seem barmy but at the time of the proposals trains were increasingly seen as the past and the motor car was the future so it was seen as time to shrink the railways In fact as noted in the report by Arthur Keen terminus stations are inherently inefficient and would be better replaced with through lines under London or loops so that trains don t have to stop and turn around Of the reports many crazy ideas that comment is about the only sane thing in the entire book One of the proposals came from a Mr W R Davidge which sent the railway underground with a station at Blackfriars Road one at Waterloo Station and then on the north side of the river at Charing Cross one at Temple and one at Blackfriars In this plan not only is Charing Cross mainline station demolished but so is Cannon Street station as both would be served by the new loop railway The architect felt that the cost of the tunnels and new stations would be covered from the proceeds of selling the land currently occupied by the railway viaducts in Southwark Meanwhile a duo of Mr G Griffin Eady and Mr H E Walters devised three possible loop railways All three were variants on the same basically a much smaller loop running towards Charing Cross and back again with just some minor differences The main one being the provision or not of terminus platforms at Waterloo so some trains could stop there and reverse back down the tunnel The new station at Embankment would have been under glass which would have been a dramatic sight at the time The cost of the three schemes came in at around the 10 million mark Of course the railway tunnels were never built and Charing Cross remains in situ today along with the railway line snaking though Southwark But how different would the whole area look if it weren t demarcated by a noisy railway line Facebook 67 Google 1 Linkedin 0 Reddit 32 Twitter 0 0 100 charing cross london bridge 5 thoughts on Unbuilt London The almost story of a loop railway under Southwark Abe says April 7 2015 at 8 26 am Interesting find Could you provide the reference for the report so that others can read it in full please Reply Alan Burkitt Gray says April 7 2015 at 3 33 pm It s still a problem that bugs railway operations that s exactly why Crossrail is being built to stop suburban trains congesting Paddington and Liverpool Street stations by letting trains run right through and distributing traffic through the centre of the city This system probably had a loop only
