London Underground is a world leading transport system that is often at the front of innovation, technological advances and services, and Night Tube is the latest addition to its portfolio. The growing demands of London, a World class city has meant London Underground needs to react and offer continued increased transport across its system.

Night Tube started on Friday 19th August 2016 across the Victoria and Central lines (initially), with the Jubilee line, Northern line and Piccadilly line opening to 24 hours from this autumn.

Links Signs were asked to survey and manufacture new special artwork to be applied to selected station roundels and to the front of the very first train to run on the service. The works were carried out in strict confidence, working alongside the Transport for London design team. The installations took place over a short window of opportunity, and were all carried out by Links Signs’ in house installation teams.

The works involved digitally printing designs onto specific material approved for installation in sub-surface rail environments, digitally cutting them to the correct size and shape for installation onto existing Vitreous Enamel signs.

The new service was Launched by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Managing Director of London Underground Mark Wild, both can be seen below next to one of the new Night Tube Roundels supplied by Links Signs.

‘This was a really exciting project to work on and be involved with. Links Signs has a long association with London Underground and delivering special projects like this. We are extremely proud to work with this Iconic, World leading transport system and be part of its history as well as looking forward and being part of its future”
