    I have just noticed that the timestamp on the TfL XML data feed for “last updated” is set to 14:38 – it’s now 15:29…

    More worryingly though is that the XML feed seems to be using the same data as the TfL website map, but misrepresenting it. The TfL map is reporting its data as up to date – clicking on a site gives an infoWindow for a site gives:

    “Availability at 15:29″

    But a spot check suggests the data being used is actually almost 1 hour old! That should be a simple bug fix, and is downright misleading :-p

    Replying to @dbrb2‘s post:

    …well, now the timestamp is showing 1443 – but still almost 1 hour out of date…
