Sadiq Khan And TfL Wanted The Tube To Remain Operational Throughout The Pandemic, So Why Has It Taken Over Three Months To Install Sanitising Units In All Stations ?

Amazing how the Mayor and TfL can roll out an unnecessary, segregated cycle lane overnight, yet take three months to provide sanitising units to tube stations to protect passengers !!!

Phone charging company ChargeUp, partners with TfL to provide sanitising stations in London Underground

A London phone charging company has announced a partnership with a transport organisation to help keep the city clean.

ChargedUp, which provides phone charging stations in public spaces across the country, has announced that its spin-off, CleanedUp, is finally partnering with Transport for London.

The company is currently providing sanitising stations across every London Underground station to help stop the spread of germs in the system.

1495 hand sanitiser dispensers were installed over the weekend – ensuring every tube station in London has at least one.

CleanedUp CEO Hugo Tilmouth commented: “We received the order from TfL on Thursday 8 May and delivered units to all their stations by the following Sunday 17.

“It was a massive undertaking, and with the Prime Minister announcing an easing of lockdown rules, it was essential that it was completed on time”.

Since its launch just a few weeks ago, CleanedUp has ramped up production from 500 units per week to 2000, in order to meet the massive demand.

They said: “We’ve partnered with sanitiser manufactures in the UK to ensure we have a consistent supply to help keep the country safe and clean.
Also, we’re installing units in other major transportation hubs in the coming weeks.”
