Good news. What's left for the Jubilee Line upgrade?

Upping the frequency, I suppose.

That has to do with signalling, or doesn't the Jubilee Line need new signalling?

The signalling has just been replaced, hence why trains are now using TBTC (transmission based train control) and driving under ATO. This replaces the traditional lineside signals and manual driving in the past.

The Jubilee line now joins the Victoria and Central lines in that respect.

I was confused about that, thanks for the enlightenment.

Notting Hill Station looks so much better after it's refurbishment, it used to be a complete dump.

New Tube alarm iPhone app wakes you up earlier if there are delays

The Tube Alarm app wakes you up earlier if there is a delay or a suspension on lines you use. Launching tomorrow, the £2.99 app is for iPhones and Google Android handsets.

Using a feed from the Transport for London website, the alarm app knows if your Tube line has delays.

‘You can set it to go off maybe 30 minutes earlier if there are major delays on your line, and if there are minor delays you can set it to go off perhaps ten minutes earlier,’ said database architect Arkajit Bala, 29, from Wandsworth, south London.

He came up with the idea after a bad commute. ‘I got to the Tube and the line was part suspended. In the end, it took me three hours to get to work. If I had have known about the suspension I could have done something about it.’

TfL already offers a free text alert service warning of delays on your commute.

I'm going to miss the trains with across seating, but at least the Bakerloo Line still has it.

I was talking about in sub-surface lines, they're more compact.
