Would I be alone in thinking that at Stratford platforms 1&2 there are not enough Pink Oyster readers? Even before 7 am it is nigh on impossible to disembark and tap the reader without becoming part of a scrum..... and this with strategic door selection and standing from almost the moment the train leaves Hackney Wick on my part. I believe there are 6 readers on platforms 1&2 but feel this ought really be doubled at the least.
TFL should look at this systematically across the network. These can't be too expensive. On the frequent occasions the Jubilee line falls apart in the evening peak, the three nearby DLR stations to Canary Wharf also have inadequate readers. At Putney Bridge whenever Fulham play at home on a weeknight there aren't enough either. Surely portable ones could be used for football games.
