24 hour London Underground service.....getting nearer?

Mmmm we may be nearer to getting a 24 hour tube service but only cos of London's bid to host the Olympics in 2012. Today's
Evening Standard said:

"Bid promoters say they desperately need a 24-hour service to carry an estimated 200,000 extra public transport users across the capital during the games.

"But the Mayor - who has long wanted trains to run all night, at least at weekends - faces obstacles to London Underground running a full 24-hour service........

"Cynthia Hay, of passenger pressure group Capital Transport, said: "If 24-hour operation can be used to entice the Olympics, why can't it be done before that?"
"

Very true.
