Are we finally going to get a 24 hour tube service in London?

The talks have been going on for years and the planning behind the scenes for even longer. Threats, strikes, walk outs and more, but we finally have a date for the 24 hour tube service!

 

Newly appointed mayor Sadiq Khan announced today that the 24 hour trains will begin on the Central and Victoria lines as of Friday 19th August, with the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly being slowly phased in, in Autumn.

Finally the greatest city in the world gets a full 24 hour tube service. All Londoners know the hassles, headaches and pure drama of the tube strikes. But the good people at TFL seem to have finally agreed with the drivers and their unions to roll out a 24 hour service. The underground network is the oldest and most complicated network in the world, which is a constant logistical challenge for all the behind the scenes TFL staff. So there may be quite a few teething issues during the infant stage of the 24 hour launch. That said though fingers crossed we get the service that London really needs and deserves and lets hope there are no strikes and walk outs between now and August.

Everything from Soul, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop you name it, it was on the stereo when I was growing up. I got into HipHop in 93/94 and the rest as they say is history! From a long haired skateboard kid growing up in Glastonbury, via Edinburgh for a few years. Now making moves in London for the last ten years and counting. My journey has been fuelled by music. I have been DJ'ing for the best part of ten years, starting of as a DMC battle DJ after smashing my way through the Scottish DMC finals, through to the London DMC finals. I turned my hand to mix cds, then radio, as well as tearing up dance floors from Edinburgh to London town then back again. Sharing the stage with everyone from Trevor Nelson to Cutmaster Swift along the way. I have passed my knowledge and skills on as a DJ tutor and I was the scratch DJ for Sky Sports, for their weekly football show "Premier League Preview". My blog here is to keep you up to date with the latest news from the urban world, reviews, write ups, features. As well as positive, mindful blogs, tell a friend to tell a friend.
