Interestingly TfL have removed the press release about the extra weekend closures from their website.
Here's an extract:
Richard Parry, interim Managing Director of London Underground, said: "Delivery of the Jubilee line upgrade by the end of the year will be of huge benefit to passengers and London's economy and will point the way to further massive improvements across the Tube network in the years to come.
"The upgrade will lead to a train every two minutes at peak times on the Jubilee line, providing a third more capacity over and above the 17 per cent that was delivered through the addition of a seventh car at the beginning of 2006.
"For customers this will mean less time waiting on platforms, and faster trains will also reduce journey times by around 22 per cent.
"Tube Lines has requested additional weekend closures to ensure it completes the upgrade by the end of December, as promised."
