Travel Update - Full Piccadilly Line in operation from 4th August

Piccadilly Line up and running from tomorrow

Well, it's amazingly quick, and I was very sceptical when I heard about this
yesterday. I think most people expected that particular line to be out for months considering the amount of damage that was done, but full credit to Transport for London for getting the Piccadilly Line back up and running from the 4th August - just four weeks after the attacks.

Since 7 July, the Piccadilly line has been suspended from Hyde Park Corner to Arnos Grove, (right through the middle of central London) and between Rayners Lane and Uxbridge (in the north west of London).

As Tim O'Toole, Managing Director of the London Underground, said: "We are now serving all stations and are determined to get on with the job of transforming the Tube.

"I would like to pay tribute to the work of the staff from London Underground, Metronet and Tube Lines who have done an incredible job in the past few weeks
."

I suppose it shows how quickly work can be done when a very public, central and much used part of the network is out of action. It's also a major message to terrorists that we're all determined to get back to normal.

Right you charity tube challengers - even more stations to cover now!
