Drivers' union reps on the Bakerloo Line have been raising the issue of the shocking condition of the "Goldfish Bowl", the step-back room on the platform at Elephant and Castle, since around the time London Underground was still using steam-powered trains.
A sorry-looking sign stuck to the booking-on point at Queen's Park, the depot at the other end of the line, says refurbishment works are expected to be completed in a few weeks. The notice is date 8 May.
Tubeworker isn't sure what firm has been engaged to do these refurbishment works, but whoever they are, they're taking their time about it. If we took the same attitude to getting things done promptly and efficiently as LUL has taken to this, the entire job would go up the wall.
