Message from The Secretary of State for Transport

An urgent message from the Secretary of State for Transport on Transport for London.

There is significant pressure on the transport system to the east of London during the 2 hour period from 06:00 each morning. Specifically, significant overcrowding particularly on the Jubilee Line (mostly being fed by national rail and DLR/Overground systems) which has become unacceptable.

Clearly this is not just construction workers, but there is a real risk that if this situation does not improve and it is apparent that the overcrowding includes significant numbers from the construction industry, then more direct action or restrictions could be imposed. This concern is likely to last for a number of weeks. It is therefore vital that alternative modes of transport or travel times outside of this particular time are used.
