Whoosh, go the the delays! new poster that has been popping up on the tube this week has been the Whoosh! one, proudly telling us that there are now 40% less delays on the tube.

This is great! Isn’t it?

Well it is… until you then perhaps look at it like this : How bad was the service before for it to be possible to have such a dramatic percentage cut in delays of 40%! That’s quite a lot, isn’t it? To us, it highlights how bad the service must have been in places to suddenly allow for such an improvement.

Note that it doesn’t say on which line(s) in particular the improvement was – something that would be interesting to know, whether it was just one line that improved, or was a general improvement across the whole network.

Bakerloo & Northern not stopping at Embankment

Embankment changes

Embankment changes

This is something that’s been planned for a while, but today we saw the first poster publicity for it when we spied this on the Bakerloo Line at Oxford Circus.

As part of massive escalator repair works taking place for most of 2014, only District and Circle Line trains will be stopping at Embankment station from Wednesday 8th January next year, until the repair work is finished. This is likely to affect a lot of people’s regular commutes so you’ll have to find a different way to your destination if this is something that you usually do.
