Key West End Tube station upgrades step up a gear



On 8 February, Transport for London announced that the transformation of two of the Capital’s busiest Tube stations had moved into a new phase as works to completely rebuild Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street stations step up a gear. Both sets of works, which are part of the Tube Upgrade Programme, will require some changes to transport services in the area.


When complete, the works at the stations will mean a dramatic increase in capacity for passengers, with larger ticket halls, new entrances and escalators, step-free access and direct links to Crossrail.


To enable the Bond Street station upgrade to get underway, Oxford Street has been closed eastbound between Duke Street and Vere Street for utility works from 14 February for nine months and several bus routes will be on diversion.  From April, for eight months, the Northern line will not stop at Tottenham Court Road station so that major structural works can take place in the platform tunnels. The Central line will continue to serve the station as normal.

All Taxi and Private Hire Fees Frozen



On 8 February, TfL announced that following a detailed review of the cost of taxi and private hire licensing, the costs of all licence fees will be frozen at current rates for the coming financial year 2011/2012.


This is the second year in a row that driver fees have been subject to a freeze and the first year that all licence fees have been frozen.


Taxi and Private Hire licence fees are reviewed annually and all funds generated are used to cover licensing and administrative costs.


In addition, approximately £1m of licence fee income will now be used to partially fund the enforcement activity undertaken by the Cab Enforcement Unit, part of the Metropolitan Police Safer Transport Command.


Transport for London launches drive to bring through the next generation of transport workers


On 9 February, Transport for London issued a call to London boroughs and major transport and construction companies to create the next generation of transport workers.  

 

As part of National Apprentice Week, Transport for London has committed to deliver more than 2,500 apprenticeship positions - internally and through its suppliers by 2012.    

 

There are so many exciting career opportunities in the transport and engineering sector, yet in many areas there is a skills shortage. TfL is determined to address this, and its apprenticeship programmes give young people a fantastic opportunity to get involved in building and operating London’s transport network, now and in the future. This will give future engineers and planners, with a chance to develop a great career and support the continued economic growth and development of London and the UK as a whole. 

 

One beneficiary of TfL's apprenticeship programme has been the flagship Barclays Cycle Hire which has 24 new mechanical apprentices as well as 133 recruits who were not previously in employment.

Plans to provide funding to 13 Biking Boroughs



On 18 February, Transport for London announced that £4m of funding is being made available for 13 Biking Boroughs to create cycle hubs and cycling communities in outer London. The funding will help boroughs engage the local community in cycling, create better cycle infrastructure and parking as well as making cycling safer.  


The aim is to create a local culture of cycling with a focus on cycling hubs in town centre locations or key areas in the borough where the potential for increasing cycling is greatest. They will also receive extra support and expertise from TfL in a bid to encourage greater numbers of cyclists in their areas.


From 21 February all 13 Biking Boroughs will have the opportunity to bid for a share of the £4m funding with TfL assessing each submission and awarding funding accordingly.  


The Biking Boroughs are Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Brent, Bromley, Croydon, Ealing, Haringey, Havering, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kingston, Merton and Redbridge
