In response to Lewisham DLR and Woolwich Arsenal stations being named as one of the twenty busiest stations in London by Transport for London (TfL), in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, local London Assembly Member, Len Duvall AM, said:

“With the Government encouraging more people to return to work, it is vital that Londoners continue to play their role in easing the pressure on our transport network.

“This list of travel hotspots, published by TfL on the 18th May, provides a useful reference point for local people and a reminder that these stations should be avoided during peak times, and especially by those who are not key or essential workers.

“Going forward, we need stronger and clearer guidance from the Government to ensure employers also take responsibility and only ask their staff to commute in if absolutely necessary and safe to do so.

“It has been positive to see TfL playing its part by increasing capacity on its services, improving safety measures for transport workers, installing anti-bacterial hand gel dispensers across its network and advising passengers to wear non-medical facemasks whilst travelling”.
