|Night Tubes To Run From September 2015|
Five tube lines will run all night at weekends from next year
From 2015, the new Night Tube will see services continue throughout the night on five London Underground lines on Fridays and Saturdays.
From autumn 2015, Londoners and visitors to the capital will be able to travel on the Jubilee, Victoria and most of the Piccadilly, Central and Northern tube lines at any hour of the night on Fridays and Saturdays.
Transport for London (TfL), says that the Night Tube will lead to a gross impact of 1,965 permanent jobs. The net additional output produced as a result equates to an additional £360m over 30 years.The exact routes served can be seen at the TfL website here - all stations shown will be served, with no skipping stops (subject to engineering works)
The estimate of 1,965 permanent jobs supported by the Night Tube is broken into - 265 through direct operation of the service and 1,700 indirectly in the night-time economy, taking into account impacts on London's night-time economy and the additional London Underground staff that would be required. Reduced demand for illegal minicabs, thus improved safety in taxis at night.
Time savings will be on average 20 minutes but up to an hour will be saved on some routes.
It also means i mproved commuter journeys for many people who work during the night-time in central London but live further out.
Standard business case shows that for each £1 spent on delivering the Night Tube, benefits will be £2.70. The move gives the potential for longer operating hours for bars, clubs, restaurants, bowling alleys, cinemas, museums, art galleries and attractions.
It also gives improved accessibility to Heathrow for passengers flying before 07:00 at the weekend.
"This would all contribute towards a more vibrant night-time economy in London, with a greater range of uses and a wider demographic help to retain London's attractiveness to visitors, residents and businesses" say TfL .
