I AM writing to express concern about the dangers on the roads where the buses terminate at Uxbridge, adjacent to Barclays bank.
There have been occasions where I have got off the bus here and noticed accidents waiting to happen, where passengers look to cross the busy road to head towards Uxbridge station, where many will then catch a Tube to continue their journey.
Due to the frequent number of incoming buses, this area is surely a poor place to terminate the buses, as the space is limited and the majority of passengers do head towards the station.
While they can always take the pedestrian crossing and walk around, the fact is most of us will take the short option, right or wrong, and endanger ourselves as a result.
This also causes congestion around the area and slows incoming and outgoing buses in an already hectic bus terminal.
I appreciate there is work currently being done to extend the pavement area in the bus station but surely the problem is more that the buses cannot move and traffic builds up, as the room to move these vehicles is limited.
Rush hour in particular is the worst. It would be good to know if anything is being considered for the incoming buses and if the new station work will help the problem, or, as I fear, hinder us even more.
