Neasden Depot: Going Up the Wrong Road

Submitted by Tubeworker on Sat, 01/05/2013 - 16:43

Since Thales installed new software last August, there have been signalling irregularities at Neasden Met depot. You clear one road, and the system clears another one instead!

This has meant that service control can not use four of the depot roads for long routes, and have to set routes bit by bit instead. It's a pain in the rear, but it is also potentially dangerous.

After constant nagging by union reps, the problems were supposed to be fixed this weekend. But then Thales discovered that the assurance paperwork has not been done, and they don't have enough time to fix everything, apparently. So we're still stuck with it.

Well, our patience has run out. It's time for the unions to set a deadline and take action to force the hand of LUL management to make their contractor deliver.
