RayThe completion on 8th February 2010 of the move of East London Bus Group head office staff to West Ham breaks an association with Ilford that goes back to autumn 1979 when London Transport's bus operations were split into ten small units and the staff of Forest District moved into premises in Coventry Road. Further changes led to a move to larger offices at 16-20 Clements Road in 1987. When the company was bought by Stagecoach in 1994 a search for freehold property led to a move to 2-4 Clements Road in 1995. At the same time a Travelshop was opened to sell the company's day trip tickets, as well as National Express tickets, travelcards and coach holidays. Following the sale of the company by Stagecoach in mid 2006, the Travelshop closed in spring the following year (from ELBG website). The new garage was handed over on 14th July 2010. Stagecoach re-purchased the ELBG on 15/10/2010.

DamonNoticed from the Jubilee Line yeaterday that this place appears to have a roof going up at the south end of the site. 3 rather large arches.Thu 09/10/2008, 14:19
RayThe security controlled entrance to the garage is on the NE corner of North Crescent. The main entrance to the office complex (and driver's signing-on point) is on Stephenson Street, which is also being applied as the legal address on buses rather than Ilford (now closed -see above)
