The Route 79 bus passes through Ealing Road in Wembley.

It’s probably the slowest portion of the route travelling home on a Friday evening. Not only is it the crowds of people who get on and go only one or two stops before getting off again that seems to make it so, the road itself seems to always have something being done to it which causes a huge backlog of traffic all the way from Alperton to Wembley High Road. And since there’s no bus lane, it means sitting it out in the heat and seething mass of humans with grocery shopping bags.
