You asked

Dear Transport for London, I'm here to discuss the Victoria line 2009 stock announcements. So recently the 2009 stock announcement scripts that you provide don't give any information about any disruption messages for example.. (The Circle line is suspended). Also I do know you are unable to release these announcements due to section 43 and it is a shame that we can't get hold off them. however can you give me some information about how many annoucments are there and see if you can make a new script for the Victoria 2009 stock.

Our ref: FOI-0556-2324/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 22 May 2023 asking for information about Victoria line announcements.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you require.

In addition to the routine announcements contained within the scripts, there are 431 audio fragments that can be combined to produce real-time information announcements for customers.

We currently have no plans to ‘make a new script’ for the Victoria line announcements as there is no business need to do so.

If this is not the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
