TfL spent £23,000 on London Underground anniversary

Transport for London spent £23,000 on a campaign to celebrate the Tube's 160th anniversary, our investigation revealed. The money was spent on new heart-shaped roundels at eleven stations as well as "goodie bags" for staff and attendees at anniversary events and prizes for a social media competition. 


Speaking to the Evening Standard, which published the findings, our investigations campaign manager Elliot Keck said:

"TfL's claims that this spending binge would boost morale is an insult to passengers after a year of disruption.

"This needless expenditure will only add to the anger of taxpayers.

"Transport bosses should crackdown on unnecessary waste and get finances back on track."
