Picketts Lock Highways Alliance

Details: Various locations had allocations of Bus Infrastructure vans until about 2018, notably Orpington, Stratford and Uxbridge. However, the vehicles then 'disappeared' to locations unknown, following the transfer of the operation from London Buses to TfL Asset Management. Ray made enquiries and was told that the Stratford vans had moved north to Pickett's Lock, but searches of aerial photographs did not yield the actual location. I tried again more recently and found the location shown here, very close to the actual Pickett's Lock (a lock on the 'canal' known as River Lee Navigation). Two of the LBSL red VW Caddy Maxi vans are clearly visible, along with a number of white cars and vans. This image was presumably captured during 2018, since most of the Caddy vans were disposed of in January 2019. I don't yet know what vehicles have replaced them. It could be vans in London Highways Alliance livery, or some with TfL lettering like the one at Morden. Or it could even be some of the 14 TfL Toyota Yaris cars delivered in spring 2019 (8836T to 8842T and 8893T to 8899T), which have been notably absent from reports since. As the location certainly has had an allocation of 'real' SVs - even though we don't know which actual ones they were - I have added it to the database as Picketts Lock Highways Alliance, with a code of PLA. A similar yard in Harlesden, which also had a pair of ex-LBSL Caddy vans, has been added as HNA (Harlesden Highways Alliance).
