"Goodge Street station is closed due to staff absence."
I'm not sure if the mornings issues are related to why it was exit only when you arrived.
Unfortunately we live in a time where corporations are more willing to give out information on their twitter handle to retain some semblance of a "public image" rather than display their information, clearly I might add, on their websites.
Its strange because Tower Hill has "Fenchurch Street" listed underneath the name. Surely Southwark could have something similar for Waterloo East? Indeed it used to be this way on the tube map up until maybe 2007/2008(?):
I really like these initiatives to make the trains more accessible. Whilst we still have a very long way to go, long may it continue. All these small things can really make a difference for some people.
TfL plans to modernise the Bakerloo line as part of the Deep Tube programme and will begin to introduce new signalling and trains on the line from the late 2020s.
In advance of this, TfL is carrying out a range of works to extend the life of the Bakerloo line fleet, making sure that the trains can continue to provide a good service until the line is modernised. As part of this TfL has recently replaced all of the seat cushions and fabric with a new moquette fabric.
TfL will begin work in July to improve internal parts of train carriages. This includes replacing and/or repairing several parts of the interior. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
By mid-2018, TfL is planning on installing LED lighting throughout the train carriages and by the end of 2019 all structural repairs to the fleet will be completed. These improvements will include two wheelchair bays in each carriage, additional hand poles and a public information system that announces the next station as it approaches.
Some new-ish tracks appeared to be placed on top of the old tracks of the old sidings in Rayners Lane. What are these for? Is it just temporary storage for track replacement work (elsewhere) next weekend?
Does the usage on the night tube justify expanding night services to the overground? I am worried about the financial costs of this, given the fare freezes and the already tight budget with government reducing available funds.
1) It mentions improvements to Harrow, specifically a footbridge with lifts. At last!
2) It mentions improving station capacity at South Kensington by incorporating a second platform for eastbound district/circle line, but it does not mention the westbound service. I find this a bit worrisome. Maybe I've misunderstood.
