Please provide an update on when residents can expect delivery of these trains. It is now three months after TfL promised that delivery would be completed.

I am pleased to say that the first of the new trains on the Chingford to Liverpool Street line – and the lines out to Enfield and Cheshunt – was introduced on 3 March 2020.

The new trains are being introduced on a phased basis on these routes to ensure there is a smooth transition for customers and that they are operating reliably. Transport for London expects that all the new trains will be in service by the end of June 2020.
