Arsenal underground station reopened this morning following a two week refurbishment scheme.
Funded by Transport for London’s (TfL’s) £10bn Investment Programme, the work to modernise and upgrade the station follows TfL’s announcement that it is to invest £50m to improve transport links to the new Arsenal stadium.
Mike Challis, Piccadilly Line General Manager, said: “The work now underway at Arsenal station is the first step towards providing a first-class transport network to support the new Arsenal stadium and local community.
“Passengers will benefit from 21st century standards of passenger information and security, while also continuing to enjoy the station’s heritage features.”
The first phase of work is the replacement of wall and floor tiles in the ticket hall and upper passageway to the platforms. The nature of the work required that the station be closed for a two-week period, which was carefully timed to avoid match days.
