Across the Underground trains, stations and track are being modernized. But with London’s population growing rapidly we need to do even more.
In the upcoming decade, we will introduce the New Tube for London, which will mean faster, more frequent and more reliable journeys on the Piccadilly, Central, Bakerloo and Waterloo & City lines.
Modern signalling and train control systems will mean the new trains can run faster and more frequently boosting capacity on the Piccadilly line alone by up to 60 per cent.
Our design vision is for a train that both echoes the best of London’s transport heritage and utilises the latest modern technology. The 250 spacious and comfortable new trains will have walk through carriages to increase capacity and will have all double doorways to speed up boarding and alighting.
Automatic trains are already in service on several lines and many Metros around the world are now introducing fully automatic trains with centralised monitoring and control to further improve customer service and efficiency. The new trains will provide real time information and for the first time on the deep level Tube, trains will be air-cooled making journeys more comfortable for customers.
Platforms will be modified to improve accessibility and modern Platform Edge Door technology, already introduced on the Jubilee line, will be progressively deployed to further improve safety and reliability. When the new train enters service it will have an operator on board. But as these trains will serve London for over 40 years they will be designed and built to be capable of fully automatic operation.
The New Tube for London is designed to meet London’s needs, making life better for customers and providing a service of which Londoners can be proud.
