Answered By: 
The Mayor

RAIB's preliminary examination identified a need to clarify the processes and arrangements that are in place to enable staff to clearly identify complex and unusual points and signals on the route.

This has been included in training for London Underground (LU) Service Control staff and reinforced through LU's competence assessment process. Details of how all the other recommendations are to be addressed will be published on the RAIB's website at the end of February.
