The human race is endowed with language; Chomsky, Pinker and the rest revel in the novelty. Humans are unique in their ability to construct language at a rate of knots!

Shepherd's Bush Station is Closed

Wood Lane

There are plenty of signs in Wood Lane to let you know that Shepherd's Bush Station (on the Central Line) is closed. I am not sure who will benefit. Most pedestrians will now be aware, and motorists will hardly care. The buses that drive past could have some passengers on the top deck who remain blissfully unaware.

Is this just some weird public relations sop from Westfield, who paid TfL to shut down the station for eight months to accelerate the project?
