Will your proposal to run the tube an hour later on Friday and Saturday nights result in a later start on Saturday and Sunday mornings or a reduction in the time available for safety inspections and repairs?

Answer for Later Tubes

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Maintenance and renewal work carried out when the Tube network is closed is essential to keep trains, track, signals and stations working and ensure the improvements to the network are delivered on time. Therefore, any changes to the hours may require a slightly later start time on Saturday and Sunday morning.
