Answered By:

Cleaning of the subway is the responsibility of the London Borough of Barnet under its Environmental Protection Act (EPA) obligation. The EPA does not specify how frequently the borough should clean the subway, only that it should be kept clean from rubbish.

TfL does however own and maintain the structural elements of the subway, and will usually do a deep clean of its own before any structural inspection is undertaken. TfL undertook deep cleans on 30/06/2013 prior to a structural inspection and again on 06/01/2014 following some localised flooding in the area.
