Night Tube expands again

London’s new weekend Night Tube services will be extended to the Northern Line on 18 November and the Piccadilly Line, which serves Heathrow, from 16 December. It follows launches on the Central, Victoria and Jubilee lines, where more than a million journeys have been made. 

London mayor Sadiq Khan, who had pledged to have five lines running by the end of the year, said introduction of the services had been a “huge success”, making night-time travel easier for tens of thousands of people every weekend.

The Piccadilly line service, which will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow’s Terminal 5, is especially significant for shift workers at the airport and for passengers arriving or departing on early weekend flights.

The mayor’s office said the night services were also making it easier for visitors  to access London’s nightlife – from bars and restaurants in Kensington to the music venues of Hammersmith and the cultural hotspots of the West End. 

The Night Tube is said to be cutting journeys across the capital by an average of 20min and some by more than an hour, and playing a vital role in opening up London’s night-time economy, which is expected to be boosted by £77m a year.
