As stated in my answer to MQ2013/3524, procurement of the Tunnel Cleaning Train has unfortunately been delayed as TfL identified new enabling work on tunnel infrastructure which needed to be addressed before the Tunnel Cleaning Train can start operations. 

TfL will be able to provide an update on the programme this autumn, once the scope of the new enabling work has been confirmed.
