Night Tube Every 10 Minutes for Turnham Green
New weekend service set to be introduced on 12 September
London Underground has announced that the weekend night tube service on the Piccadilly line which will serve Turnham Green will be running on average every 10 minutes.
The trains will run between between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5 on Friday and Saturday nights from 12 September but there will be no service on the Terminal 4 loop, or between Acton Town and Uxbridge.
They will charge standard off-peak fares for travelling on the Night Tube. Day Travelcards will be valid on the day of issue (using the date printed on the card), and for journeys starting before 04:30 the following day. For example, if you buy a Day Travelcard at 11:00 on Friday, you can use it until 04:29 on the following Saturday. Daily capping on Oyster cards and contactless payment cards also applies.
Although there will be no ticket office at Turnham Green, London Underground say that the station will be staffed all 24 hours it is open at the weekend and that staff will be 'visible' to passengers.
London Underground have to carry out a thorough assessment of noise issues alongside local authority Environmental Health Officers before the service is in place. Once the Night Tube is operational, they say they will continue to work with residents to investigate any issues regarding noise. They have also promised to ensure that any station announcements do not cause excessive noise levels.
Upgrade and maintenance work will continue to be done but will now take place overnight between Sunday and Thursday on the Night Tube lines.
