It’s just a week before the start of the Olympics and London’s Tube network is falling apart.
Thousands of Tube travellers suffered major disruption as signal failures blighted the Circle, District and Hammersmith & City lines today. This was the second day of disruption after the Circle and District lines were suspended yesterday due to the delay in wrapping up late night engineering work.
Circle line trains on the Cannon Street-Victoria and Aldgate-Edgware Road routes came to a grinding halt after signals went down at South Kensington at 8 am
District line was suspended westbound between Aldgate East and Earl’s Court which caused major delays on the rest of the route.
Hammersmith & City lines trains reported disruptions between Moorgate and Barking.
But the delays didn’t end here.
There were signal problems between New Cross Gate and London Bridge, one of the busiest stretches of mainline track in the UK.
London Overground saw long delays between Highbury & Islington, Crystal Palace, New Cross and West Croydon.
Are we really ready for the Olympics?
