What's going on with the Jubilee line?
It looks like it is going to be closed every weekend from now until October!
It's a real PITA at the weekends especially since bus services from London Bridge to central London or West London are crap!!!
Anyone got any info on why we get such a bad service in SE1?
now unless I am being stupid, these are great for replacing the Northern Line...but the Northern Line is working - where is the replacement bus service to get to Green Park, or Baker Street or Stanmore even from London Bridge?
London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon has tabled a question to Boris asking that the replacement bus that currently runs to Bank be diverted to run to Waterloo instead. Answer should be available next week - watch this space.
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."
Why are they not working during the night instead of the weekend? Specially if Jubilee and Central line are not working. One can take 188 to Strand, but often over the weekend you have to wait ages until one arrives!
