Jube tube debut

The final stretch of the underground railway line which will take people from central London to the Millennium Dome opens to passengers today.

The Jubilee Line extension, which cost three and a half billion pounds, is the biggest single addition to the Tube network in more than a quarter of a century, and the country's biggest construction project since the Channel Tunnel.

It took two years longer to build than expected and cost nearly twice as much as originally forecast.
