Well, we see a journey from a passenger perspective. I suppose most of what is discussed here is from a user's point of view.

I'm more correct than you have been and I haven't "agressed" anyone.

Does anyone know when the Victoria Line signalling upgrade will be finished? They will increase frequencies right?

Yeah some stations need a redevelopment but there are good ones as well, like Finsbury Park. Right know they are focusing on the rolling stock and the signalling. One thing at a time.

There's work ongoing even as we speak to upgrade Victoria - a second ticket hall and an expansion of the facilities will be constructed over the next few years. The problem with the Victoria Line is that there was a budget cut, so LU changed the station designs to save cash; the result was that the stations were almost instantly overwhelmed. My own personal bete noir is Vauxhall, which is still two separate, busy stations, instead of one effective interchange.

It's these upgrades that are not well known because they're not mega-projects but they are essential to bring sophistication to the system.

upgrading Victoria is almost mega-project in terms of cost - £500 million isn't it?

Does that only include signalling replacement or station upgrades? I like what they did in Finsbury Park.

Whats wrong with the Victoria line? I think it's one of the better lines, and the new rolling stock will improve it even more. But I do agree with you regarding Victoria station.
