Disused & Live Stations

The request is waiting for clarification. If you are Tom Bryant, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am currently researching the london underground and its evolution over time, and i was wondering if you could help me by passing on the following information;

a) How many disused stations are on the london underground network, their names, current uses and locations (if locations cannot be given (understandably) then locations on the line (ie. between station X and station Y).

b) The names of the companies / bodies that are currently in possession (or were at time of sale) of any sold stations.

c) Current live stations (underground network including surface stations)

d) Any future expansion plans or future plans for station development.

As i understand it, there is a cost limit to the FOI requests. If this request exceeds that amount, then if possible, could we go through the list in order until we reach that cost.

Yours faithfully,

Tom. Bryant

Dear Mr Bryant

Thank you for your email. You asked a number of questions that have been
considered under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act. I will
try to provide as much information as possible to assist with your
enquiry. You asked.

a) How many disused stations are on the london underground network,
their names, current uses and locations (if locations cannot be
given (understandably) then locations on the line (ie. between station X
and stationY).
b) The names of the companies / bodies that are currently in
possession (or were at time of sale) of any sold stations.
c) Current live stations (underground network including surface
stations)
d) Any future expansion plans or future plans for station
development.

I have attached a list with this information. You may also be interested
in a book published by the London Transport Museum called London's Disused
Underground Stations which provides further information which you may find
useful.

Traditionally disused stations were used for the purposes of tours. This
was via London’s Transport Museum, Learning and Development and LU Film
Office. Visits were organised for their interest and historic values or
to support operational learning. In 2000 London’s Transport Museum
announced that they would be discontinuing tours for staff and public due
to increased security, health and safety regulations. This was as a
result of advice given by Operational Security who, whilst discouraging
tours, understood that visits would remain at the discretion of the Group
Station Managers as the Landlords of stations. These stations are still
owned by London Underground and some are used by our Film Office for
commercial filiming only.

I have attached the current London Underground Tube Map which lists the
name of all "live" underground stations.

With regard to your final question - please can you clarify this part of
your request. London Underground is currently completing major upgrade
works to transform the tube system. If you you can specificy what line
or location you are interested in I can provide the further information
you require.

Please contact me again if you need any help in the future.

Yours sincerely,

The link that Sue D Nym helpfully left earlier is now broken as the file has been renamed. An updated version of the document can be found at:

http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/s...

As of this writing, the current revision (1.09) has the info for points (a) and (c) on pages 59 to 76 (and a nifty map showing all the infrastructure on page 58).

And the most up-to-date version of the London Underground Safety Certificate and Safety Authorisation Document on TfL's website seems to be Version 2.1 from July 2015:
