its temporary as i found advice about escalator outage - Quote from TFL status on website
CANNING TOWN: Until late November, there will be a reduced escalator service at Canning Town station. This is while we carry out planned refurbishment work on two escalators, one at a time.
The first escalator out of service is one of four that runs between the ticket hall and Jubilee line. This will be followed by one of two escalators leading to and from the station entrance/bus station.During this time please follow signs to an alternative escalator, staircase or lift.
A and C and i think D stocks did this - some half lights go off and half lights on but while in deep tubes - its very rare to have half of lights go off - the refurbished deep tube stock now dont go off straightaway but however not sure about S stocks - i think new all connected in one unit
One good idea used on trains overseas, It is a lighting strip of LED's adjacent every doorway, which remains dark when the train is in motion, and turns Green once the doors begin to open. The strips turn to red just before the doors begin to close, and the door close buzzers begin to sound a few seconds after the strips turn red. When the doors are securely shut, the strips go dark again, and the train moves off.
croydon trams has one that has LED lights above doors
however the asterdam metro newer trains has led strips on sides of doorway frame
yes i remember copehagen metro started as 5 to 12 am with no night service - this latter expanded to 24/7 with single tracking in nights - fully automated so DLR can run 24 hours no matter if they have issues
the entrances to station has new scrolling screens attached to arch which can show the night tube messages - i never seen this before - i think this is new idea for people to get know what is happening in underground station eg station closure or line suspension when nothing happens - they seem display station name message
also 2 lifts isnt enough for busy station - 4 express lifts would be ideal - like one found in NYC station at Lexington Av / 63 - which has 4 large elevators serving both levels - but more simllar idea for automatic lifts at heathrow temerial 5 which has 4 lifts there serving three levels
but if 2 elevators served both elevels could be busy because there no direct escalator down to lower level
i Note the Victoria station has no step free blob but its should show dagger that step free is available from northern ticket hall only to Victoria line only - i would suggest to them to add orange blobs to show that is part step free
I noticed the status message on website under Victoria station - VICTORIA STATION: Victoria station now has step free access from the new entrance at Cardinal Place to the Victoria line platforms. This message shows that lifts are in service now - I am not sure
3 lifts are now in service. None of them have 'close doors' buttons. PM me for pics (file size is way too big for here).
Lift C - Cardinal Place/Victoria Street entrance/exit ↔ Northern ticket hall Lift E - Northern ticket hall ↔ Interchange level Lift G - Interchange level ↔ Victoria line platforms
