Jubilee South branch concerned about recent train tests on the line

Jubilee South branch have passed a motion highlighting our concerns following reports of testing on the Jubilee Line, whereby a train was alledgedly moved in engineering hours without the operator being required to 'activate' the cab with their key or to operate the manual control switch.

Branch officials and representatives are investigating the reports and preparing an action plan to respond to the issue.

The motion
