Answered By: 
The Mayor

Prior to the introduction of the Night Tube, LU has undertaken a series of track renewal and rail grinding works on the Northern line to ensure that the tracks are in optimum condition. Where concerns have been raised engineers have investigated and undertaken improvements.

Once the Night Tube is operational London Underground will continue to work with residents to investigate and address any issues regarding noise, should they arise. Residents and customers will continue to benefit from LU's ongoing upgrade programmes and maintenance works to improve track condition.
