The news that night Tubes are to make their belated start in August will come as bittersweet for many of those living next to the above-ground Central Line.
Trains running every 20 minutes throughout Friday and Saturday night will mean people living next to the overground Epping branch – which includes Hollybush Hill, New Wanstead, Sylvan Road, Eagle Lane, Osprey Close, Alexandra Road, Foxdene Close and other roads Â – having to get used to the new overnight noise.
Those living above the Hainault branch of the line – houses near to the A12 – may also get have new noise patterns to get used to. Earlier this year many people living in this area reported hearing strange noises which Transport for London put down to new portions of track bedding in.
Tfl last year issued a statement about trying to minimise the noise from the night tube, which is pasted below. Trains are due to start on 19 August and details about the new service are here.
