Circle line to call at Hammersmith

Circle-Line-Map_432_tcm21-116439 London Underground has announced that Circle line services will be extended to Hammersmith from December 2009.

The changes, which are part of the LU Investment Programme, will almost double the frequency of trains between Hammersmith and Edgware Road as well as increasing reliability and capacity on the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, say LU.

The new service will run from Hammersmith (H & C station) to Edgware Road station and then join the current Circle at Edgware Road and make a single loop, terminating at Edgware Road station. It will then reverse and do the full circle anti-clockwise, returning to Hammersmith.

This is the first phase of the Sub Surface lines upgrade, which will include a new fleet of air conditioned and accessible trains and a new state of the art signalling system.
