TfL plans £25-million centralised London Underground control centre at Palestra.

Southwark chosen for LUL command and control centre

This autumn Transport for London commissioner Peter Hendy approved a project to merge seven separate control rooms in a new command and control centre in the Palestra building opposite Southwark Underground Station. There was questions asked about the cost, but Mayor of London Boris Johnson has defended Transport for London's £25-million plan to centralise its London Underground control rooms at Palestra in Blackfriars Road.

According to a paper prepared for TfL's finance and policy committee: "The network operations centre, power, track access and policing control centres will all be linked to enhance communications between functions and improve London Underground’s response to incidents."
