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.

Cally tube regally only works with x1 lift (like it is at the moment). Although there is sometimes a few minute wait its manageable.

More convenient for the local people and people working around the area specially in winter time.

At present, there is regularly 1 lift out of order due to works. Surely this can be continued with a full overhaul process and reduce the effects this will have on the number of commuters who use Caledonian Road Underground Station, instead of closing the whole station.

Ridiculous that they should close the station for nearly a year. Logical to have one lift open whilst the other is replaced, seems there’s only one lift operating all the time anyway. Plus (I know this doesn’t apply to the disabled people), though they know there is still stairs?


Absolutely the station should not be closed. Will I be compensated for the additional cost of travel to work?

It’s ridiculous to expect locals, especially those with disabilities, to find another option for 8 months. Another option must be found.

The proposal to close the entire station for 8 months is ill conceived and hugely inconvenient to local residents and workers. Enforced changing of our journeys will incur hours of extra travel per week, which as a hard working mum is unnacceptable (I miss enough of my baby daughter’s life as it is); not to mention the additional cost we will be forced to pay for journeys ie overhead / additional buses. Please consider repairing one lift at a time and show that you value local residents and workers rather than opting for a blanket closure, an ‘easy option’.

As someone who lives in the area the closure of cally station for such a long period of time would cause major delay and aggravation with regards to my morning commute. I can only imagine how much worse this would be if I had a disability. Just silly when there is a perfectly valid solution, repair/replace one lift at a time TFL stop being idiotic. Big thank you to our labour MPs for driving this campaign forward!
