All Victoria Line trains will run the full length of the line from Walthamstow Central to Brixton for the first time when a new timetable is introduced this weekend.

From Sunday, the new timetable will deliver a 40 per cent capacity boost for Tube customers northeast of Seven Sisters.

Previously, only 24 trains per hour could be run beyond Seven Sisters due to the old layout of the points at the Walthamstow Central crossover.

However, improvements to concrete foundations and track at the station carried out last year mean 34 trains per hour will now run “end to end” on the line at peak times on weekdays.

London Underground says this will make the Victoria Line the highest-frequency train service in the UK.

George McInulty, London Underground’s Programme Director of Renewals, said: “Victoria line customers in northeast London will notice a huge increase in Tube services starting this Sunday.

“Forty per cent more trains will now run between Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central following major engineering work on the line last year.

“These timetable changes form part of our work to increase Victoria line services to a record 36 trains per hour – a train every 100 seconds.”
