More misery for Jubilee line commuters
More closures have been announced for September
Commuters delivered a damning verdict on the mayor’s transport policy after more weekend tube closures were announced.
Transport for London (TfL) confirmed on Monday that the Jubilee line will be suspended between Stanmore and Willesden Green on the weekend of September 3 and 4 - having promised that weekend closures which have disrupted the line since 2009 would stop in June.
Part of the track will be closed to allow engineering work to take place on the Metropolitan line, which shares the same track as the Jubilee line.
Tube stations in Brent affected by the closure include Kingsbury, Neasden, Dollis Hill and Willesden Green.

“The mayor needs to go back to basics and sort out the whole problem because he has failed to deliver on a lot of assurances he has made.”
Transport for London insists the September closures are not related to Jubilee line upgrades which they say have now been completed.
But mayoral candidate Ken Livingston says Mr Johnson has failed to keep promises to end weekend closures on London newest tube line.
A TfL spokewoman said: “The completion of this upgrade work will result in an initial increase in services from 24 to 27 trains per hour from the end of July, with a further increase early next year.”
