Bob Blackman MP Welcomes Weekend Tube Service Announcement

bob_blackmanBob Blackman, MP for Harrow East, has warmly welcomed plans from the Mayor of London to offer an all night tube service on Friday and Saturdays from 2015.

Harrow East is the home of the Jubilee Line terminus of Stanmore, so this will be extremely beneficial to residents, offering a better service and more opportunity to get out and enjoy the attractions of Central London and then get home late at the weekend.

Bob Blackman, said: “I fully agree with what Mayor Boris Johnson is proposing to upgrade and improve the tube network for the modern age. The Jubilee Line is an arterial one across London and many of my constituents rely on it, so I am very pleased it has been included in the lines set to be opened all night at the weekends. I also look forward – as I’m sure many of constituents do – to seeing an end to closures of the line during the weekends as well. The new weekend services will run through the night, initially on the Piccadilly, Victoria, Central and Jubilee lines, as well as parts of the Northern line. Boris Johnson has pledged that the move will boost jobs and “our vibrant night-time economy.”
