Dear Hayden Johnson,

 

TfL Ref: FOI-4025-2324

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 4^th
February 2024 asking for London Underground announcements.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. 

 

Specifically you asked:

 

“Under the Freedom Of Information Act 2000 please may I request a copy of
the new Adrian Hieatt automated announcements sound files for the Central
Line 1992 Stock trains please, and if possible the previous
announcements.”.

 

I can confirm that we hold the information you require. You should have
received an email separately that provides a link to our repository of
audio announcements. All of the audio announcements across the full TfL
network that we are currently able to provide access to are accessible via
this site. However, please be aware that many of the audio announcements
that can be heard across the network are actually made up of smaller,
fragmented recordings which are then combined for the purposes of public
announcements so there will be some instances where full recordings of
specific stop/station names, numbers or locations are not held.

We intend to update these files on a six monthly basis and so any newer
recordings will be uploaded as part of this pre-determined schedule,
rather than in response to specific future FOI requests. This is to ensure
our resources can be managed effectively. Therefore, if you are aware of
newer recordings that have been created that are not yet uploaded, we
would appreciate your patience with this as requests for these recordings
will be refused under section 22 of the FOI Act on the basis that there is
a pre-existing intention to publish these in accordance with our
publication schedule. We would therefore encourage you to wait for this
upload rather than submit requests for recordings in this way. To confirm,
these updates are expected to occur around January and July of each year.

The audio announcements made available to you are copyrighted material and
access is provided for personal use only with permission not granted for
any re-production or re-use. In the event that these files are re-used in
any way we are likely to consider this to constitute a breach of copyright
and will consider appropriate next steps.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

David Wells
