|Timetable Set for Tube Ticket Office Closures|
All Hammersmith and Fulham offices will shut by December 2015
The timetable for the closure of ticket offices on the London Underground network has been announced, with some stations in Hammersmith and Fulham among the first to face the axe in February 2015.
The closures, which Transport for London is describing as "transformation" will hit the north of the borough first, with Shepherd's Bush Central Line Station shutting in February.
Shepherd's Bush Market, Goldhawk Road and White City will follow between April and June, with Wood Lane following between October and December.
Hammersmith's Hammersmith and City Line Station is set to close between April and June, as are West Kensington and Ravenscourt Park. while Barons Court and Hammersmith Piccadilly and District Line Stations are scheduled to shut between October and December.
Work on the closures will last between one and three months, and all of the ticket offices in Hammersmith and Fulham will be closed by December, with local staff among 900 across London expected to lose their jobs.

Labour London wide Assembly member Murad Qureshi has condemned the closure plan, saying:
" Before he was elected Boris Johnson promised voters that he would not close any of the capital’s ticket offices, now he is set to axe them all. Londoners will have to ask how much the Mayor’s word is really worth."
