When was the last deep  clean of the subway at Hendon War Memorial NW4? When is the next scheduled? Do you really  believe that is sufficiently frequent given the mess that accrues there?

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. TfL also undertook additional cleans on 08/11/2013 as a prelude to Remembrance Sunday and on 05/12/2013 following some debris unfortunately being deposited following a routine drainage clean.
