Answer for Tube Station Closures

Answer for Tube Station Closures

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please see the table below. Closures have tended to be in the early morning around the start of service. This is largely due to staff sickness or lateness and the closures are typically for short periods of time.

Record numbers of people are using the Tube with up to five million passenger journeys made every day on the Tube and over 1.3 billion made last year. Against that backdrop of rising demand across the network, station closures have reduced by around a third compared to five years ago. There is of course more to do and I have urged TfL to drive this down further
