Waterloo & City line to reopen on 21 June


London Underground’s shortest line, the Waterloo & City line that connects Waterloo and Bank stations, will reopen on 21 June.

The line has been closed since March last year when those who were able to do so were told to work from home. From 21 June, people are expected to return to offices in greater numbers and the Waterloo & City line will run every five minutes Monday to Friday from 06:00 to 10:00 in the morning and 15:30 to 19:00 in the afternoon.

These hours will not only allow passengers to spread their journeys to avoid busier times in the mornings and afternoons, but also add extra capacity during peak times for those commuters who cannot change their working hours.

Customers are still encouraged to travel at quieter times where possible across the network and TfL will continue to monitor demand.

Andy Lord, managing director of London Underground, said: “The reopening of the Waterloo & City line on 21 June will be a step back towards normality for London, as people who have been working from home return to offices in the City.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming customers back onto the network and helping the capital get back onto its feet again.”

For the past 14 months, Waterloo & City line drivers have been playing an important role in the fight against coronavirus on the Central line, ensuring that TfL could offer as much service as possible on one of the key lines on the Tube network to enable social distancing and help people move around London during restrictions.
