Channel 5

The Tube: Keep London Moving! returns with an insight into the challenges of managing London’s vast transport network during major events. The season finale, airing on Channel 5 on Sunday, 21 April, will focus on the logistics of handling football fans on match days and the impact of additional events such as the Ride London cycling event.

With London being home to 13 professional football clubs, match days present a significant challenge for Transport for London (TfL). The episode will explore the impact of simultaneous kick-offs for the final Premier League matches of the season, adding pressure to an already crowded transport system.

Adding to the complexity, tens of thousands of cyclists will descend on the capital for the Ride London event, resulting in road closures and potential delays. Engineering works and track-side incidents will further test the resilience of the transport network, with staff bracing for potential overcrowding and the risk of disruptive behaviour from rowdy football fans.

The episode will also highlight the contrasting experiences of staff at different stations, from the exuberance of ABBA fans at Pudding Mill Lane to the more challenging encounters with football supporters at south-west and south-east London stations.
