I have now received a response back from Transport for London regarding
my concerns about the rail replacement service for the Victoria Line
whilst engineering works take place. They have assured me that a
service is supposed to run once every five minutes and that delays have
been caused recently by roadworks that have now finished. They have
assured me this has improved the service and that the bus company are
monitoring the service to ensure reliability.
card passengers can receive targeted information about any planned
closures or delays that may affect their journeys by registering to
receive email alerts with planned closures. To register, go to
www.tfl.gov.uk/oyster and then follow the “open an online account”
link. Furthermore, a new facility to provide weekly planned closure
emails regardless of Oyster registration is in the pipeline and should
be available over the next couple of months. In addition the “check
before you travel” page on the website has a six-month calendar of
planned closures – that is available on www.tfl.gov.uk/check.
