Question

At the most recent ward Safer Neighbourhood meeting in Haverstock, concerns were raised about the impact of the night tube and in particular that it would result in more people who have had too much to drink relieving themselves in doorways on the way to or from Chalk Farm station. How do you plan to mitigate against this, and will you consider reopening the public toilet at Chalk Farm station?

Answer for Night tube and public convenience for Chalk Farm

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Since the successful launch of Night Tube on the Central, Victoria and Jubilee lines, I am pleased to say there has been no reported increase in this kind of anti-social behaviour around Night Tube stations. TfL will continue to work closely with the police to ensure there is a strong police presence both inside stations and on the streets nearby to deter anti-social behaviour.

 

Chalk Farm station has had no public toilets for over 25 years. The toilets at this Tube station have been converted into a station staff control point and into a small shop so it would not be possible to re-open them.

 

I do appreciate that access to toilet facilities is an important issue. TfL has published a map to show toilets on the Tube network at: http://content.tfl.gov.uk/toilets-map.pdf. All toilets on the Night Tube lines will remain open through the night.
