TOPIC: Arriving soon at Platform 1: Many months of evening and weekend diversions to Kings Cross

Arriving soon at Platform 1: Many months of evening and weekend diversions to Kings Cross 02 Nov 2019 23:54 #4862

Great Northern Rail has announced that from Saturday 14 December 2019 until an undisclosed date in summer 2020 the line between Finsbury Park and Moorgate will be closed on most weekday evenings from 21.40 and on most weekends. On these days trains will run to and from Kings Cross (at a slightly reduced frequency on weekdays).

The closures will allow Network Rail to carry out "intensive maintenance and cleaning of the tunnels" and preparatory work ahead of installing a new signalling system which will increase throughput capacity.

This diagram shows the affected days between December and May (but the closures will continue after May):

Wonder how important/busy that stretch of line is out of hours?

Mon-Fri commutes it is rammed and absolutely essential but I can't see late night services as such a necessity. Even weekends can be a bit mixed - City isn't a big draw on Sat or Sun. Not getting to Highbury & Islington is the main pain from experience.
