From TfL’s website:

“Boris Johnson said: TfL have done their best to balance their books in an extremely tough economic climate.  At the same time as the downturn, the ramifications of the failure of the beast that was Metronet have also become increasingly clear.  We are doing all we can, but further cuts are inevitable.  With this in mind, I have directed London Underground to investigate alleviating Tube overcrowding by omitting stops in inner areas.  This will provide instant relief and a faster journey for the hard-pressed suburban commuter without the need to close lines and buy expensive signalling systems.  People from the inner areas won’t lose out, either, as they can avail themselves of my super cycle hire scheme or enjoy the healthy fresh air from my smoothed traffic flow while they dash from pavement to pavement on their walk to work”.
