As visitors to the UK capital know, the easiest way to get around London is to ride the Tube. With three and a half million journeys made each day on 11 lines serving 270 stations, it is paramount that all stations within this complex logistical network are operating at full efficiency. As part of the Tube Improvement Plan initiated by Transport for London (TfL), owner of the London Underground, KONE secured an order to fully replace fifteen elevators and modernize a further four elevators at six busy Tube stations. Further modernization packages will be provided when the need for upgrades arises. The new order marks the continuation of a long-term partnership between KONE and TfL, which began in 2000 with the extension of the Jubilee line, the London Underground’s biggest expansion project in over 20 years. The installation of 118 escalators and 34 elevators was followed by an order for 35 KONE MonoSpace® elevators, all enhanced to meet the London Underground’s specifications as part of its Step Free Access project at a number of stations.
