How many times Walbrook St entrance closed at Bank station in the past year
Request ID: FOI-0384-2324 Date published: 02 June 2023
I'm writing to inquire how many times the Walbrook St entrance at Bank Station has been closed in the past year due to staffing shortages.
It would suffice if you could give me the number of days this has occurred in the past year.
TfL spent many millions of pounds of taxpayer money building a new entrance for the Waterloo and City line at Walbrook St and it is quite often closed due to "staffing shortages". This is a shocking waste of money.
