VILLIERS WELCOMES ANNOUCEMENT TO CANCEL EARLY CLOSURES ON THE NORTHERN LINE THIS SUMMER

Theresa said, “This is good news for my constituents. I welcome the efforts TfL are making to reduce the number of closures they feel are needed to deliver upgrade work on the Northern Line.”

“Unfortunately, it won’t be possible to deliver tube upgrades without passenger disruption, but this reprieve will come as a relief for Northern Line commuters. It is important that every effort is made to minimise disruption and early closures, because of the hassle and frustration they cause. This is something I have raised with TfL, and with Tube Lines before the recent buy-out by TfL. Hopefully the review announced this week will provide the opportunity for thorough consideration of the best way forward and a further chance for the community to express their views.”
