Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground (LU) met with the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) to discuss Night Tube, and review fire safety provisions. This included the means of escape for interchange stations where there are areas closed off during the operation of Night Tube. The meeting took into account the points raised by the relevant trade union's Stations Health & Safety Council.

The meeting identified a number of actions required locally at specific stations, which are being carried out before Night Tube commences in partnership between LU and LFEPA.
