This would include the new announcements covering the Northern Line Extension to Battersea if possible.

Thank you for your time.

Dear Sam,

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1306-2122

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 17^th
September 2021 asking for recordings of announcements from various TfL
services.

 

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

 

I can confirm that we hold the information you require. Your email account
has now been added to the permissions list to access the audio recordings
and you should now have an email with a link enabling you to access the
folder (please check your spam folder if this is not visible).

 

Upon opening the link you will be asked to verify your account which will
generate a code to be send to your email address which is only valid for
15 minutes (you may need to check your spam folder). Once that code is
entered you will have access to the relevant files which can then be
downloaded. Should you encounter any difficulty with this please contact
[1][email address]. Note that the files do not yet contain the
announcements from the Northern Line Extension. We will upload these in
due course, where those recordings are not subject to the section 43
‘commercial prejudice’ exemption (as is the case with various other London
Underground announcements due to the terms of our contract with the
suppliers). The section 22 “information intended for future publication”
therefore applies to this information at the current time. Given we are
likely to resolve this matter very shortly, we believe the public interest
rests in applying the exemption and withholding the material until its
publication with the suite of other announcements.

 

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
