Tube line closed due to Covid will fully reopen on weekdays next month – .


FAll weekday services are due to resume on a London Underground line for the first time since March last year, Transport for London (TfL) said.

The Waterloo and City line – which connects the city of London to Waterloo station – was closed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Peak weekday services were reintroduced in June when people started returning to work, but no trains run outside of peak hours.
TfL said services will run all day from November 22 to make it easier for people to stagger their trips and support flexible working.
The transport agency said it had not been able to resume full weekday services earlier as drivers were required to drive trains on the central line, where demand is higher.
He added that Saturday services on the Waterloo and City line will not be reintroduced “for the foreseeable future”.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: ‘As Londoners and visitors return to the capital, whether for work or to enjoy London’s world-class culture and hospitality, it is important that they can move around the city easily and safely.
“The Waterloo and City line provides another great transportation option and a vital link to the city, and the return of full weekday service is a big boost to the economy of the capital as we continue to recover from the pandemic. ”
London Underground Managing Director Andy Lord said: “The Underground played an important role during the pandemic and I am proud of the great work that is going on behind the scenes to allow customers to travel with confidence with clean, safe, frequent and reliable services. “
