How diverting...

Submitted by Tubeworker on Fri, 16/11/2018 - 15:34

Westminster was looking like it wouldn't have the minimum numbers to open, so some bright spark had the novel idea of ringing LUCC and getting them to divert a staff taxi carrying someone bound for Canada Water to make up the numbers.

It's not clear whether the person was even familiarised at Westminster and whether the station was, therefore, actually still under numbers when it opened.

Either way, this sets a pretty bad precedent. Can staff now be expected to be diverted to any station on the route of our taxis that might need the extra body? If staffing levels hadn't been cut to the bone, maybe these emergency panics wouldn't arise...
