Dear Transport for London,

Can you please let me know for each tube station the number of times it was closed in the last 12 months due to "staff shortages" and for how long each closure lasted.

Yours faithfully,

A Carter

Dear Mr Carter

 

TfL Ref: FOI-2051-1617

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 21
January 2017 asking for information about station closures.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

Please see the information you have requested attached. The spreadsheet
provides details of all reported Full Station Closures due to
non-availability of staff. This also includes instances resulting from
staff lateness due to staff taxi related issues and operational reasons
i.e. staff being moved from one station to allow another priority station
to open or remain open. Our Tube system carries around 1.43bn passengers
annually.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some 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
