London’s Piccadilly line will as of this weekend finally begin its initiation with the night tubes that will allow passengers to be transported to the Heathrow airport, the busiest airport within the UK.
The passengers using the night tube will have a far more advantageous service now when needing to catch flights during the weekend within the early hours of the morning.
The night tubes will travel across terminal 5 at the airport along with Cockfosters so as to allow ease of transport for people that work at bars, people who visit bars, and those who work or dine in at restaurants or concerts situated in Kensington, Hammersmith, and the West End.
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, has proudly announced the introduction of the night tube, saying that he promised earlier that five lines of transport would be constructed for the citizens and would be able to do so towards the end of 2016, and feels it is an honor and takes pride in knowing all has gone well just in time before the upcoming winter holidays.
Mr. Khan added that the night tube has exceeded their own expectations, and he predicts for a much higher boost in the economic advantages of the night tube if it gets stretched out even more. For the past several weeks, the Piccadilly line had seen numerous service failures as difficulties regarding the wheels had been an ongoing matter.
Regarding this situation, Mick Cash, general secretary for the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) expressed his concern on the matter of going ahead with the night tube plan. Mr. Cash stated that it would be utterly illogical and lunacy if the night tube’s construction would not be delayed simply to assure that the other trains are deemed to be safe and secure.
