NIGHT TUBE – Noise complaints around the tube


Last night at a consultation meeting with residents of Baker Street tube station & TfL took place at their offices behind the station, to discuss tube noise issues. The above map was presented of all the rail noise and vibration complaints made to TfL along the tube system. Each yellow stop, indicates a point of noise complaint along the tubes. 

From what l have heard and seen, the problem is by far the worst in the Baker Street neighbourhood, though what l heard from residents in Notting Hill Gate last night did make me wonder. Nonetheless, it did not appear that all instances of the problem had been recorded by TfL particularly on their map above. 

For example l had previously meet up with residents in Walthamstowe with my ex-colleague Jennette Arnold AM and their long standing complaint was not registered at the end of the Victoria Line in North London. Please check the map. 

Whilst the immediate emphasis is on the Victoria & Central line providing a night service on Friday & Saturday night by the end of August, you will need to get registered into TfL list of complaints for them to acknowledge the problem at all.

If you are not on it, get in touch with them immediately.

It is clear that a lot of it won’t be sorted out before the night service has began but those with noise complaints living above or along the tube lines need to make their representations asap.
