East London Line and Victoria Line...
Changes are afoot at Highbury & Islington station near where I live. The new East London Line to open in 3 years. And then extended to Highbury & Islington a year later. So I'll be able to get the train direct from H&I to Sydenham where Sarah lives.
But… lots of work is going on the tube system in the meantime too. From TfL web site: During 2007/08, major Tube improvement works will include: Victoria line - Over 18 extensive weekend closures for line upgrade work, including two weekends of full-line closures and four partial weekend closures. Additionally, the Victoria line will close at 23:00 every night from Monday to Thursday, between 23 July and 22 November 2007, to assist Metronet with delivery of this major line upgrade. Early closure of the Victoria line will be suspended if it coincides with a Premiership football match at White Hart Lane or Emirates, and if there is a major event at Finsbury Park.
Alternative travel arrangements for the Victoria line early closures will include ticket acceptance on most local bus routes and two special bus services:
From Brixton to Victoria (where passengers will be able to use the Circle and District lines): starting at 23:00 to close of traffic
From Walthamstow Central to Finsbury Park (where passengers can catch the Piccadilly line): starting at 23:00 to close of traffic.
