Tram platform names at Wimbledon station - not 10a or 10b as expected


#1

The arrivals api is returning a mixture of platform names for arrivals of trams at Wimbledon station. There are two platforms for trams at Wimbledon: 10a and 10b, and the destination boards there now show ‘10a’ or ‘10b’ alongside the expected trams.

The StopPoint … Arrivals api however is returning different names for the platforms, depending on the destination.

I used

https://api.tfl.gov.uk/StopPoint/940GZZCRWMB/Arrivals

(plus my app_id and app_key)

and, if the destinationName is Wimbledon I get Westbound - Platform 1, or 2

if the destinationName is New Addington or Elmers End, I get Eastbound - Platform 1 or 2.

hi @wade

Thanks for pointing this out. We’ll take a look at the dataset for Wimbledon.

I’ve chased the error through to the source data we receive from the Tram operator. I’ve queried if they can correct this issue regarding Wimbledon station.
