Details: Photographed at Cromwell Road bus station in Kingston on Saturday 24th January 2004 was RO02OSV, one of 6 Honda ST1100 motorbikes delivered in 2002. These bikes are used to provide a rapid response incident attendance service. The Centrecomm offices at Victoria, staffed by Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police, will dispatch a bike to any road accident that either involves a bus, bus infrastructure or, more commonly, will require the diversion of bus services. One of the main reasons for the introduction of these bikes was to reduce the risk of police diverting buses along unsuitable roads before LT staff had arrived. This particular unit is used almost every day.
