Northern Line (Bank branch) four month closure begins on Saturday 15 January

Postby Community Editor » Fri Jan 07, 2022 2:21 pm

Latest message from TFL:

The Northern line (Bank branch) will be closed between Kennington and Moorgate from 15 January to mid-May 2022.

This is due to works we are doing to substantially improve the capacity at Bank station. The upgrade will make Bank station safer, create more space and make journeys quicker and easier.

Travelling on the Northern line during the closure:
There will be no Northern line at Bank, London Bridge, Borough and Elephant & Castle
There will be more Northern line trains on the Charing Cross branch of the Northern line
There will be fewer Northern line trains between Camden Town and Moorgate
Many lines and stations across central London will be busier, especially around the City of London

To get to destinations in the City (including London Bridge, Bank and Moorgate):
Use the District or Circle line from Victoria instead of Embankment
Use Southeastern services from Waterloo East to London Bridge, instead of the Jubilee or Waterloo & City lines from Waterloo

To get to Canary Wharf:
Use the DLR from Bank
Use London Overground from Clapham High Street or Clapham Junction

Consider taking a bus for all or part of your journey
There is a new temporary bus route running Monday to Friday from Oval to the City (Finsbury Square) - route 733. This will stop at Oval, Kennington, Elephant & Castle, Borough, London Bridge, Bank and Moorgate

Walking and cycling
There are a number of Cycleways that can get you to the City, including C6 to Blackfriars and C3 to London Bridge
Use Santander Cycles within inner London
Consider walking part of your journey

For a more comfortable journey, we suggest travelling at quieter times
You can also download TfL Go, our live travel app, to check alternative routes and re-plan your journey.

I find this length of closure difficult to comprehend on such a busy line for our area.

Why has our (next to useless) MP , Roseena, not been jumping up and down on this ?
