Answered By: 
Peter Hendy (Commissioner, Transport for London)

The signalling system will be replaced on most lines during the PPP line upgrade works over the next ten years (except for the Central line whose signalling systems was upgraded prior to the PPP). There is no separate cost estimate available as it is included within the total multi-billion pound PPP upgrade programme.
