More Jubilee Line for everyone!

Monkeyboy alerts us that from Monday, there will be more frequent and ever-so-slightly faster Jubilee Line trains running throughout the day, the result of the recently-completed upgrade of the line. TfL says the extra trains will:

Provide capacity for 6,500 extra passengers per hour during AM and PM peaks. WTT12 [Working Timetable 12] will see an increase in our off-peak frequencies of up to 21tph during the weekday interpeak, 24tph on weekday evenings and Saturdays and 20tph on Sundays.

Customers will also feel the benefit of our new timetable during the morning and evening peaks when our enhanced peak service will see Jubilee line trains running every two minutes in central London.

Well that's just fu**ing perfect. Southwark station is shut, bus to elephant for me.

Great news! When will the corresponding strike be?

@MB - my heart bleeds. I was stuck on the Jubilee Line for 2 hours in a carriage with the alarm going off and some young kids crying about missing JLS at the O2. Eventually had to walk back up the tunnel to get to Westminster Station, where the District Line trains were not stopping so I then had to walk to Waterloo, get a train to London Bridge and then New Cross, whereupon the Oyster reader docked me the maximum fare, because nobody could possibly take 3 hours to travel from St James' Park to New Cross.

I hold you personally and solely responsible.

Nick, ring up Oyster for a credit

Does that mean my head stooge status is now vulnerable?

Sounds like a dishonest fare.

Aye, but starting from such a low base.

Ringing Oyster takes longer than Nick's journey. I find e-mailing them a better option.
