Transport for London, which is carrying out the work as part of its Tube Improvement Plan, has warned all passengers using the station that “it will be extremely busy at peak times”, adding: “If you use the Tube, please consider using nearby stations to start your journey. If possible, National Rail customers travelling to central London should change at Highbury & Islington or King’s Cross St Pancras.”
