Anyone notice missing bus stand @Great Portland St tube?

Where’s the bus standard disappeared to?

 During the campaigning for the GLA Election in May l noticed that the bus stand in front of Great Portland Street tube along Marylebone Rd had been removed, so l asked a written Mayors Question Time (MQT)about it to TfL.

The written response stated that the life-expired shelter originally at this location was removed in March 2012 in readiness for a new upgrade shelter to be installed. However, as Marylebone Road forms part of the Olympic Route Network, the embargo on street works came into force before the replacement shelter could be installed.

TfL is nonetheless seeking to establish if it is possible to install the replacement shelter before the start of the Olympics. If this is not possible, it will be completed as soon as possible after the embargo is lifted in October 2012.

When l last went passed It had yet to be replaced and by now probably not going to happen till after the Games. So lets keep an eye out for a new bus stand sheltering us from the elements in the Autumn hopefully.
