Tube delays: Jubilee and Victoria worst lines
Boris Johnson is being urged to ‘get a gip’ on the daily delays and disruption on the London Underground.
It follows latest Transport for London monthly figures showing a rise of three per cent in hold-ups in the first month of the year compared to the same period of 2010.
Worst of all were London’s two newest Tube lines, 26 per cent increase on the Jubilee and 18 per cent on the Victoria.
“It’s time the Mayor stopped passing the buck and making excuses,” said the London Assembly’s Labour transport spokesperson Val Shawcross.
“Boris Johnson should sort this mess out and get a grip on the delays which are making the tube a misery for Londoners.”
Average delays were six-and-a-half minutes, according to TfL figures. Delays on the Jubilee, Metropolitan, Circle and Victoria were around six minutes, on the Central five-and-a-half minutes and on the District four minutes. Delays on other lines were: Bakerloo 4.3 minutes, Northern 4.2, Piccadilly 3.8, and Waterloo & City 2.0.
