From Saturday, July 2 night services will resume on the line after they were suspended due to the pandemic.

The resumption of these overnight services through the borough has also been supported by a doubling in the frequency of trains during the day on the Northern Line Extension between Kennington, Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.

The frequency of trains has increased from six to twelve trains per hour during peak times, and five to ten trains per hour at off-peak times. This will provide a more frequent service to customers to align with the growing demand for travelling on this section of the Northern line. The frequency increase also supports the continuing regeneration of Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea which is identified as an Opportunity Area in the London Plan. 

Nick Dent, TfL's Director of Customer Operations said: "I'm very pleased that the Night Tube service on the Northern line will return on Saturday 2 July, providing a further boost to the capital’s recovery.

“Night Tube provides a safe and quick travel option for all Londoners and visitors looking to make the most of all the capital has to offer in the evenings, and those who need to travel to or from work at night. The summer is the perfect time for Londoners and visitors to take full advantage of London, including its world-class night-time economy.”
