Central Line below capacity

by gwynethdeakins on 27 January, 2017

Lib Dems have revealed that last month there was not a single weekday when the Central Line operated with the required amount of trains during peak times. And on just two days at weekends that month the Central Line operated with the required amount of trains. TfL have told us that the Central Line trains are already old and subject to breakdowns – they plan a refurbishment which will help eventually but probably lead to more delays over the next year. The trains are not due to be replaced completely until the 2030s!! We are calling for more significant investment before then. With the extra housing development in South Woodford planned by the Council, the Line needs more capacity, not less.
