Report of the City Surveyor.
The Committee received a public lift report of the City Surveyor for the period 30/10/2021 – 26/11/2021.
A Member observed that the London Wall down escalator had been available for 97.83% of the time during this period according to the report but questioned how this was calculated since he had known it to be out of operation very frequently in recent months. Officers stated that the Member appeared to be referring to the escalators that came down onto Wood Street which were not the responsibility of the City but of the developer. Officers undertook to follow up on this matter.
Members were informed that there was currently an issue with one of the escalators on London Wall which was out of operation at present and would therefore feature on the next public lift report. It was however expected that the fault would be fixed later this week.
RESOLVED – That Members note the report.
