When the lockdown struck, London Underground closed a number of tube stations, but they’re starting to open again. The requirement to ramp up services as quickly as possible back to normality was one of the conditions of the bailout agreement with the government last week.

Some stations that are open may close at short notice if staff are needed elsewhere to handle crowds, and all are likely to have crowd control measures in place to reduce the risks of the virus spreading.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Lambeth North and Tooting Bec were both closed initially, I believe. Do you know when they were reopened?

    And is there any word on when the remaining stations are likely to reopen?

  2. Moses Mann says:

    When will bermondsey station open?

  3. JP says:

    Questions, questions. Hmm.
    Instead of simply bothering the teacher, benefits are to be gained from interrogating the source material yourself. I dunno, why not try e-mail updates from, or visit the TfL site itself?
