Journey Planner Datastore zip file not uploaded

The Datastore file is normally uploaded late on Tuesday evening or early on Wednesday. At the moment (just before midnight on Wednesday) there has been no update; the file available for download contains files dated 28th January rather than 4th February.

Hi @mjcarchive - the Journey Planner Team are now looking into this.

Thanks,
James

Hi @mjcarchive - this has now been resolved.

Thanks,

Hmm. I have just downloaded the file again twice. It still contains the 28th Jan files.

The link I am using is

ww.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/syndication/feeds/journey-planner-timetables.zip

Unfortunately the only way to find out if the file has been freshly created (never mind whether its contents are new) is to download all 120Mb of it. It can;pt be checked from the Data Bucket because (as far as I am aware) it is not listed there.

hi @mjcarchive - can you please try again, I needed to invalidate the cache on the CDN

That sounds painful, James.

It’s done the trick anyway.

Just the ongoing Resurrection of Dead WTTs and the Mystery of the Missing Spider Maps to sort out now…

@mjcarchive

We’re still working on that. The processes that do this include a fair bit of legacy processing so are difficult to get your head around. Spider’s web is a good analogy

Thanks,

James

No update so far this week either. Though as I assume rather than know that it is meant to happen late Tuesday evening I may be jumping the gun but after last week’s experience I thought I’d get in quick(er).

What is the timetable for updates anyway?

In the words of Major Burns, just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean that people aren’t out to get me (see threads on Working Timetables, Spider Maps…).

Hi @mjcarchive

The Journey Planner team uploaded this yesterday at 3:35pm.

I downloaded a copy of this today and it seems to be up to date. Can you please try again and let me know the result.

Thanks,
James

James

Thanks. The file contains the correct files now but I can assure you that it did not this morning! It cannot be caching at my end as it downloads a fresh file each time. Perhaps they updated somewhere but didn’t update the location that I use until this afternoon?
