Wanstead to Leytonstone Central Line track replacement delayed


The discovery of asbestos has caused delays to the replacement of Central Line track in the local area.

“We are replacing rail track between Wanstead and Leytonstone Tube stations to reduce noise levels… Ahead of work starting we identified some asbestos, which has now been dealt with by a specialist team to ensure the safety of staff and customers. As a result of this we have made some changes to the track replacement programme, but will complete it as soon as possible,” said a London Underground spokesperson.
