Stratford to benefit from 24-hour weekend tube services

London’s 150-year-old underground system is finally set to follow the New York subway and European metros by introducing 24-hour services across parts of the network.

The weekend service will begin in the early hours of September 12 next year, and will include Stratford where MLP manages various properties.

“Running the Tube through the night will help bring investment and jobs to the hospitality and entertainment sectors,” Baroness Jo Valentine, the chief executive of London First, the capital’s business lobby group.

There will be six trains every hour through central London on designated “Night Tube” lines, including the Jubilee, Victoria and most of the Piccadilly, Central and Northern lines. On the Northern line, there will be eight trains an hour to meet demand at busy stations between Leicester Square and Camden Town.

Mr Johnson said the 24-hour service had been made possible thanks to the continued modernisation of London Underground.

The service will be extended to the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines once the
infrastructure has been upgraded, TfL said. That work is due to be completed in 2018.

TfL has previously promised to look at extending the service into the week.

Mike Brown, managing director of LU, said: “Already over half a million Londoners use the Tube after 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and the introduction of the Night Tube, which will cut journey times and open up new possibilities across the night time economy, is a historic step in our modernisation of the underground.”
