The London Assembly has urged TfL to make public its research on harmful particles in the Underground. In a letter to TfL, Environment Committee Chairwoman Caroline Russell said, “Why is TfL not releasing information relating to the levels of arsenic and chromium VI in the public domain?” Lilli Matson, TfL’s chief safety, health and environment officer, said the particulates found on the Tube “were not known to have the same adverse health effects” as those above ground, which are carcinogens.  She added that TfL spent £60 million every year cleaning trains, stations and tunnels.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
