AN ALL-PARTY group of MPs has attacked delays to installing a new signalling system on the
Jubilee Line Extension, which will affect travel to the £800 million Millennium Dome in Greenwich.
They warned that visitors will be 'packed in like sardines' on trains. The criticism came as London Underground managing director Denis Tunnicliffe admitted to the Commons Culture Committee responsible for the Dome that the signalling system might not be ready until 2000.
This means the line will only be able to take 17 trains an hour when it opens next year, instead of the 24 originally proposed.
Committee chairman Gerald Kaufman told Mr Tunnicliffe: 'This is a great international event. I would have thought that, with not much more than two years to go before it opens, you would have been thinking through a series of things to assist people to get there.'
