Lengthy rush hour queues are set to return for Brixton commuters from Monday, as refurbishment resumes on the Tube’s escalators.
TfL announced that work will take place on two of the escalators from January 12 until July. TfL said the escalators would be taken out of action one at time, stripped down and rebuilt by hand “to provide a safe and reliable service.”
Last year Brixton commuters described “complete chaos” while work took place on the first of the station’s three escalators.
TfL has advised people travelling during peak hours to use Stockwell station instead or the Brixton overground line to Victoria.
