Dear Henry Walker,

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1264-2324

 

Thank you for providing your full name received by Transport for London
(TfL) on 25 July 2023 regarding your request for access to TfL
announcements.

 

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

 

However, you will have previously received an email where a link was
provided to the audio announcements. Please note that 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.

 

As we have previously advised you, 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.

 

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.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mary Abidakun
