London Underground line closing later this year for £2.9billion upgrades

One of London’s Underground lines is due to undergo closures, starting later this year. The Piccadilly line is in for new trains and an overall upgrade.

This will cost £2.9 billion altogether. Now Sadiq Khan has said that TFL Transport for London is deciding when the capital’s dark blue route will be shut. The first new train is due to arrive in London for testing in 2024 and enter service in 2025. At the moment, a plan to inform customers of these is being developed.

Updates are due to be sent to commuters directly. The Mayor of London – who is also Chair of TfL told the London Assembly: “In preparing for the new Piccadilly line trains there will be closures on the line for both infrastructure enhancements and testing the new trains. The dates of these closures are being agreed at the moment.

“An integrated customer communications plan is also being developed. Customers can sign up for email updates related to closures on the TfL website”
