TfL: 40 tube stations closed, no night tube and free bikes for NHS

Transport for London has closed the night tube, 40 smaller tube stations and the special Waterloo & City Line, and announced that the tube trains will gradually run less frequently. TfL will also suspend the congestion and pollution charges from Monday, and give NHS staff free rental of bicycles for all trips under 30 minutes.

The RBKC council rejects TfL’s cycle lane plan

At the public meeting about TfL’s bicycle lane plan for Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park Avenue, held in Kensington Town Hall on 13 June, three days before the public consultation ended, the council leader Elizabeth Campbell announced to the 600 attending residents that the council would reject the plan. This somewhat chocked the London mayor’s walking and cycling commissioner, Will Norman, as the council previously had said that it would be neutral about the plan until the result of the public consultation had been published.
