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."
Murad Qureshi is a London-wide Assembly Member and is Vice Chair of the Assembly’s Environment Committee.
