The over-running Jubilee Line upgrade should be complete at Easter but Mayor Boris Johnson lost his grip on the issue

The latest update on works to the Jubilee line is that the over running works should be completed by Easter.

The Mayor Boris Johnson has totally failed Dudden Hill residents on this issue. I was out knocking on doors in my ward last week and asked a resident who lives close to Dollis Hill tube station what she thought about the tube service on weekends. Her response saddened me.

She said, “I don’t consider it an issue. It’s just something that I’ve factored into my life. We don’t have a tube service on weekends.”

It shouldn’t have to be like this, I thought. What’s even worse is when the service is running during the week there are delays, often at crucial times when people are just trying to get to work and earn a living. Furthermore we get unprecedented hikes in tube fares to go with this lack of weekend service and delays.

This is unacceptable. The time for Boris to get a grip on this issue has passed; he has already lost it.
