Whitechapel is already 'All Doors Enabled' on both platforms. Did you mean West Brompton WB?
West Brompton is not included in the current list. Whitechapel is indeed a non-SDO station but I believe is included in the current list as it would remove some misplaced and confusing wrong-side equipment.
OHLE OverHead Line Equipment, Pudding Mill Lane- to east of Whitechapel & Stepney Green junction-Abbey Wood is due to be energised from 1 October 2017. Phase 2, including Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel (station) is planned for February 2018.
Work is now starting at several stations to ease the SDO Selective Door Opening by removing the legacy OPO equipment (C & D Stock), the positioning of which prevents some doors opening at these stations. In the programme so far are: Upminster, Hornchurch, Dagenham East, Whitechapel, Cannon Street, Euston Square, Putney Bridge. It’s hoped to have these finished by end-of October.
No other legacy OPO equipment at any other stations will be removed at this stage.
ASLEF members on London Underground have voted overwhelmingly for strike action in an industrial dispute with the company. In a ballot conducted by Electoral Reform Services drivers were asked two questions:
Are you prepared to take part in a strike? Yes: 88.4% No: 11.6% Are you prepared to take part in industrial action short of a strike? Yes: 93.5% No: 6.5%
Turnout was 53.1%
ASLEF’s executive committee, meeting today, has called a 24 hour strike on Thursday 5 October.
Finn Brennan, ASLEF’s organiser on London Underground, said: ‘ASLEF members have voted by an 88% margin to take strike action in our dispute over the failure of LU to deliver on the commitments they made to improve work life balance as part of the 2015 pay settlement.
‘As part of the settlement of the dispute over the introduction of Night Tube, LU agreed to introduce a mechanism to allow drivers to reduce the number of shifts they work, on a pro-rata basis, and “new ways of working” to reduce the percentage of weekend shifts worked by July this year. They have repeatedly refused to make any detailed proposals to do so.
In spite of LUs previous claim that all S Stock trains had been delivered to London, we can reveal that is now correct, as the last new train to be sent from Bombardiers' Derby works arrived in London this morning, namely 21547/48.
This finally completes the delivery of 192 S Stock trains, the first being delivered for testing on 26 October 2009 !
