Martin from Mayorwatch reports as an update to his post on the Purdah Row between Boris and opposition City Hall politicians that the proposed 10am Boris-led launch of the service on the 15th April has been cancelled.  There’s no word on any rescheduling there.

There is little information as of yet to why the opening has been delayed, but sources suggest that it is to allow a camera-related software fault on the 378s to be fixed and tested.

Boris PR stunt held up by fault with camera, then.
