Victoria Line trains now running every 100 seconds

Victoria Line trains on the London Underground (LU) network are now running every 100 seconds, thanks to new digital signalling.

The new timetable started this week, which sees the trains running every 100 seconds during rush hour, meaning there are 36 trains per hour at rush-hour. The move is increasing capacity by 3,000 passengers every hour during the peak.

LU managing director Mark Wild said: “We’re running more trains than ever before, with the most frequent train service in the country and one of the most frequent anywhere in the world. This will make a real difference to our customers, creating more capacity and making stations and train services less crowded. We’re also making more of our stations step-free as part of our huge investment in making London Underground more accessible.”

The new technology has been installed by Siemens Rail Automation, which provided technology including the automatic train operation and underlying trackside signalling systems.
