Cally Road Tube

In December 2015, Transport for London (TfL) announced plans to replace the two lifts at Caledonian Road tube station, which would have resulted in the closure of the station for 8 months from March 14  until the end of 2016.

Islington Council opposed the closure and instead proposed that the lifts be replaced one at a time, allowing the station to remain open.

After the Council issued legal proceedings, TfL agreed to withdraw and reconsider its proposals.

But we need to keep the pressure on, so that TfL makes the correct decision.

The local busses will not be able to support the additional passengers. Also, 8 months is completely unacceptable when there are alternative solutions.

The left lift has been closed down for nearly 4 weeks now, so cannot see why both have too!

Tube station closing would be horrible! Caledonian Road station is by far the fastest and most efficient way to commute in this area, and many students and professionals rely upon this fast connection into the city. Just do 1 lift at a time, or use the unused lift shafts!

Take less time to repair the 2 lifts at the same time.It can be done in less than 2 months. If you only do one lift at a time what happens if the other one goes out of order.There was only one lift working yesterday.

One lift is closed at the moment and the station is still operating, even if it’s a pain, so the tube could do the upgrades even without the other lift shafts being opened.

Totally horrified about the proposed closure. What arrangements have been to help us to travel during all this? Extra buses? Why on earth can’t one lift be done at a time allowing the station to remain open?
