Caroline, commenting on the figures she obtained from the Mayor of London, said:

“The delays caused by overcrowding on the Jubilee Line are especially alarming.

“There is a vital need to maintain investment in improving the Tube, however we also need to go further and consider imaginative policies to manage demand on the Tube.   A good start would be to encourage more people to start their journeys earlier in the morning by offering half price Tube travel for any journey that starts before 7.30 am.

“Pressure on the Jubilee Line could also be reduced if a much needed pedestrian and cycling bridge to Canary Wharf to Rotherhithe was built.”

“Tube delays due to overcrowding should be falling.   It is vital that this upward trend is reversed.”
