Residents of Fitzrovia were told that noise from the Victoria Line around Warren Street was not caused by the conditions of the tracks, and so Warren Street was not included in the list of track areas to be ground. It now transpires that there has been corrugation on the rail there, but it will be months before there can be grinding, due to lack of availability of the machine. This is clearly not adequate management of the track or the continuing tube noise issue. Can the grinding of the rails here please be prioritised?
