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.

2 months after I moved into the area the announced the tube closure. I had chosen this area because of the tube connection, for commuting as well as safely getting home at nights as a young woman. It is outrageous to not consider the impact to the public that this closure will have. It is far more than just an inconvenience. Even though I do not want to move away, I may be forced to if commuting to work and travelling late at night will become difficult or unsafe for me. Public transport is for the public, so PLEASE DO CONSIDER THE NEEDS OF THE PUBLIC!! Especially since operating the station with only one lift is well reasonably achievable.

Surely keeping one lift open at Caledonian Road is safer than doubling the number of people wanting to use the lifts at Holloway Road ? As that is what will happen is Caledonian Road is closed. BTW didn’t there used to be more than two lifts at Cally ?

Since only 1 lift ever works at the station at any given time the decision to close the station for such a long period so both can be fixed at the same time seems bizarre.
