The demise of the PPP gave TfL the opportunity to look at upgrading the Tube using a much more consistent approach across the Bakerloo, Piccadilly and Central lines. As a result, the Bakerloo line upgrade is now being progressed as part of the wider programme for these lines - that will use advances in technology to deliver the best possible service, including improved reliability, for Londoners while also delivering substantial cost savings. The procurement process for a replacement fleet on the Bakerloo line is part of this wider piece of work, which is at an early stage of development.
