HL Deb 26 October 1998 vol 593 c192WA
Lord Marlesford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is still planned to open all stations of the Jubilee Line simultaneously in spring 1999; and, if not, whether they will give their estimate of the date of opening of the whole Jubilee Line, or sections of the line, and each station on the line. [HL3429]

Lord Whitty

The Jubilee Line is planned to open in three phases.

Phase one will open the extension between Stratford and North Greenwich in late spring 1999. This section includes four stations: Stratford, West Ham, Canning Town and North Greenwich.

Phase two will follow in late summer. This section will include six stations: Canary Wharf, Canada Water, Bermondsey, London Bridge, Southwark and Waterloo.

The third and final phase will complete the extended line by linking Waterloo with the existing line at Green Park in autumn 1999.
