The next stage of the 24hr tube unfolds…
By Steph Dye (follow Steph on Twitter: @HelloIAmSteph)
2016 has been a wonderful year for British transport. First there was the the addition of more twenty-four hour buses, then the first night tube lines (the Central and Victoria lines) were opened all night on Fridays and Saturdays. Most recently, the hard fought bus-hopping fare has finally been bought into action. As if it couldn’t get any better, two new lines are being added to the roll out. Firstly, the Jubilee line, which is scheduled to open on the 7th October and most recently, the Northern line, which is now rumoured to be opening on the 18th November.
The Jubilee line which will run it’s full course, from Stratford to Stanmore will have trains running across it’s line every 10 minutes. The Northern line on the other hand, will only be running on the Charing Cross branch, as the city side is not as busy during off-peak times. It will run from Morden to Camden Town every eight minutes and then on to High Barnet and Edgeware every fifteen minutes. Unfortunately, there is no service on the Mill Hill East or Bank branches yet.
This is still a rumour of course and TFL have neither confirmed nor denied the suggestion. The fifth line of the programme, the Piccadilly line is yet to be given an opening date. Whilst you are waiting, why not check some cool late night venues on the Central and Victoria lines?
What?: The opening of the Jubilee and Northern lines.
When?: 24 hours on Friday and Saturdays.
Where?: Across the TFL network!
