    Union wants night Tube safety answers

    Union wants night Tube safety answers

    Safety concerns have been raised over plans to run all-night services on the London Underground.

    There has been speculation that the all-night Tube service could be launched on two lines as early as August before starting on a further three lines the following month.

    The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union’s members have accepted a pay deal related to the new public transport service.

    But the union is still in dispute over engineers and has now written to London Underground to complain that there has been a lack of consultation about the health and safety implications of running the all-night trains.

    ‘Safety is LU’s top priority’

    London Underground’s chief operation officer, Steve Griffiths, though, maintains that safety is always their “top priority”.

    He says “comprehensive procedures” are in place to make sure that both Tube passengers
    and staff are safe when they are using the services.

    Mr Griffiths says stations operating through the night will remain staffed at all times. Over 100 officers from British Transport Police, meanwhile, will carry out high-profile patrols throughout the night, he adds.
