It simply beggars belief that such expensive buses were ever purchased by the Mayor and TfL with such a basic design fault – Caroline Pidgeon

September 18, 2015 7:57 PM

Caroline Pidgeon AM, Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, commenting on the announcement by Transport for London that they will install opening windows on the new routemasters at a further cost of around £2 million said:

"Anything to make travelling on the new routemasters more bearable during the Summer is obviously welcome. These buses are quite frankly a cauldron on wheels during hot weather.

"However the Mayor must now explain why the needs of passengers were overlooked when he decided to purchase these incredibly expensive buses.

"It simply beggars belief that such expensive buses were ever purchased by the Mayor and TfL which such a basic design fault."
