London Tube Services Disrupted Due to Power Supply Issues - BLOOMBERG
SEPTEMBER 12, 2022
(Bloomberg) -- Some London underground operations are experiencing disruptions following power supply issues this morning, Transport for London says, as Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral draws crowds into the city.
The Piccadilly line is still suffering “minor delays” between Acton Town and Heathrow Terminals/Uxbridge due to a power supply issue earlier, according to TfL’s website.
The Victoria line, whose operations had already been fully suspended earlier today due to an energy problem, is now partially halted between Seven Sisters and Warren Street while a faulty train is being fixed at King’s Cross. Severe delays have been reported on the rest of the line, TfL says.
The travel issues occur as TfL warns of busy services and possible station closures amid a growing flow of visitors to London following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
