A COUNCILLOR has written to London mayor Boris Johnson inviting him to hop aboard a rail replacement bus so he can experience the misery Brent commuters face at the weekends.
Rail passengers in Brent are furious the competition date for the work being carried out on the Jubilee line has been pushed further and further back.
The work was supposed to be finished in March 2009 but that date was moved to Easter 2010, then October, and now may not be finished before Christmas.
Councillor Daniel Brown, Lib Dem spokesman for highways and transport, wrote to the mayor of London last week, asking him to come to Brent on the weekend of July 24-25 to see for himself the chaos caused when the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines are both down.
He said: "While everyone in Brent appreciates the need to upgrade the line, the weekend closures cause considerable disruption for local residents, especially when Jubilee line closures are linked with Metropolitan line closures.
"I've invited Boris to come and see what it's like for residents on a weekend when both lines are down."
The Observer contacted the Mayor's office, but they were unable to comment in time before going to press.
