London Underground has reviewed all stations served by Night Tube lines which also interchange with other lines/services. At most of these stations LU will construct new gates or modify existing infrastructure to enable separation of the operational and non-operational parts of the station. These gates will be added to the standard security check regime to ensure that the integrity of the separation is maintained. A small number of stations will use temporary barriers to segregate the station as more permanent options are not feasible, and staff will be deployed to monitor those areas. The plans have been presented to the Department for Transport, the British Transport Police and approved as safe to use by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority.
