Bakerloo and Northern line passengers are being reminded that trains will soon cease to stop at Embankment station to enable the installation of four new escalators.
Work gets underway on January 8th and is expected to last until November 2014, during which time passengers will need to use either Waterloo or Charing Cross stations.
London Underground says the lack of adjacent staircases to those being replaced means it’s not possible for Bakerloo and Northern line trains to stop while the work is carried out.
District and Circle line trains will continue to operate as normal.
Nigel Holness, LU’s Operations Director, said: “We have explored various options to carry out these works and keep the station open. However due to the layout of the station it is not possible to carry out these works while Northern and Bakerloo line services are stopping at the station.
“We have taken the decision to have trains on both lines non stopping so that we can carry out the works in one big hit which is the most efficient and least disruptive option. Passengers will still be able to use Circle and District line services.
“Customers wanting to travel to and from the Northern and Bakerloo lines are advised to use either Waterloo or Charing Cross which is a couple of minutes walk from the station. We apologise for the disruption to journeys this will cause but the works are vital for the continued safe operation of the station.”
