Plan Ahead – Bank London Underground Station Upgrades To Disrupt Underground Services

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Advent.

This is the best summary I have seen about what will happen between the 15th January and mid-May next year, when the Northern Line is closed between Moorgate and Kennington stations to work on the upgrade to Bank station.

As I rarely use the Northern Line between Moorgate and Kennington stations, I probably won’t suffer much inconvenience.

But i do have two convenient bus routes between my house and London Bridge station and there is always the Overground and a change to the Jubilee Line at Canada Water station.

  1. There is a plan to introduce a bus service from Oval to Moorgate to cover this closure . Hopefully they will also by then restore full services on the Waterloo and City line which will allow commuters from Morden end of Northern line to travel to Waterloo then change to Waterloo and City line for Bank Station .

    • The Drain is a sore point with me and many who live in Dalston, De Beauvoir Town, Newington Green and Shoreditch. We get the 21 or 141 buses to Bank and then take the Drain to Waterloo.

      Coming North, it’s even better as the stop is close to my house.

      I remember about some years ago, when they closed the Northern Line to relay the tracks and the buses worked fine then.

      But now we’ve also got the Overground between Highbury & Islington and Canada Water. It even goes on to Clapham North for the Northern.
