On Our Line Extra: The Night Tube



To celebrate the start of the Night Tube service this evening, London Reconnections is pleased to bring you the first episode of On Our Line: Extra.

On Our Line Extras are additional podcast episodes outside of the regular studio cycle. These episodes still focus on all matters transport, but might vary in scope and format from the our regular format. For instance, they may be on very timely topics such as this episode on the Night Tube today.

In this episode, Nicole talks to the man responsible for the implementation of the Night Tube. Kevin Dunning is the Director of Asset and Operational Support for London Underground, and has been responsible for the logistics and preparation for the new 24hr service.

The talk covers a wide range of topics, from the initial planning and engineering challenges, to the testing process, and what we can expect from the service in the months and years to come as it becomes a staple of London life and impacts upon the city.
