Dear Louis

 

Our ref: FOI-0684-1920/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 4
June 2019 asking for the asbestos survey report for the Jubilee line
extension stations.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the
Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy.

 

I can confirm that we do not hold the information you require. Following
the ban of crocidolite (blue) and amosite (brown) asbestos in 1985, a
total ban on the use of all asbestos in construction came into force in
the UK in 1999. Although the Jubilee Line Extension was constructed just
before this, the use of asbestos in construction materials leading up to
1999 was very limited. The controls on the materials used on the Jubilee
Line Extension (JLE) project would mean that asbestos would not have been
used so these stations can be deemed asbestos free and as such no asbestos
surveys have been undertaken for JLE stations.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
