Isn’t it funny how when there is a disaster, management agree to safety improvements, then, when they think that everyone has forgotten about it, they try to reverse the improvements on the sly?
After the Camden and Hammersmith derailments two years go, the Infracos agreed to introduce ‘Lampmen’ (‘Lamp-persons’, surely?) to make sure that track patrols could actually see what they are doing. But now, Metronet plans to withdraw them.
Yet another safety compromise in the interests of saving money? You might think so. Tubeworker could not possibly comment.
