Highbury & Islington station - no down escalator service until mid October 2013
Transport for London would like to remind passengers using Highbury & Islington station of the following:
While escalator refurbishment work takes place there will be no down escalator service. Access to the Victoria and National Rail platforms is via stairs only and there will be delays of up to 90 minutes to enter the station after events at the Emirates Stadium.
To avoid these delays, you can make your return journey via Archway or Angel stations instead, using the signed walking routes. If you use Highbury & Islington please note that queuing will be on the south side of Holloway Road. You must follow the route down Holloway Road as no access to the station or the queuing system will be available from Highbury Fields.
Please note that Arsenal and Finsbury Park tube stations will be operating as normal.
