The request was successful.

From: D. Merren

Dear Transport for London,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, could you please supply
me with a spreadsheet containing information regarding the depth of
underground tunnels in London.
Specifically I would like a list of all the stations on the London
Underground Network with the depth (measured in meters above sea
level) of each line that runs through that station.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Transport for London,

I am writing to enquire about my request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, sent to you on 4th May 2011 which
can be found at the following url:

I have yet to receive a reply to or even acknowledgement of my
request and I would now like to request an update of my application
for this information to be sent to me within three working days as
you are now in breach of the Act:

"A public authority must comply with section 1(1) promptly and in
any event not later than the twentieth working day following the
date of receipt."

I appreciate that you are busy but, as a courtesy I would have
expected some communication from you if you had a good reason as to
why the request was going to take longer to process than the limits
allowed by law.

If I do not receive a reply within the next three working days, I
shall be requesting an internal review of the way this FOI request
has been handled.

Yours faithfully,

D. Merren
