Murad Qureshi AM calls for a better Tube service in West London

Labour London Assembly Member Murad Qureshi said

The latest Transport for London (TfL) figures show:

  • Station closures are up on the District line by a staggering 1250%
  • Delays are up by 300% on the Jubilee line
  • The were fewer trains in service on every Underground line across the network in November / December than a year earlier
  • There were more delays towards the end of last year on the Central, District, Jubilee and Victoria lines than in the same period the year before

Murad added: "It’s all very well refurbishing the stations & installing shiny new trains, but unless & until the signals are sorted out we’ll never get a reliable Tube service in West London."

Ends.
