24-hour weekend Jubilee Line is coming

LondonLovesBusiness reports:

For the first time ever, Tubes on the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria Lines will run round the clock [at weekends]. The project will begin in 2015 and is expected to create 200 jobs.

Mike Brown, managing director of London Underground, said: “Rebuilt stations, new trains and signalling systems mean we are now running some of the most frequent metro services anywhere in Europe. To meet the challenge of London’s growing population and development, we must continue to invest and deliver even more efficiently in future.

As well as being fairly useful for Brockley residents, it does mean a 24 hour London Overground service might become a reality too.
