Along with the stickers I mentioned earlier, I was surprised to see that the yellow warning of disruption stickers that have announced Tottenham Court Road’s closure were still up at stations. Until I looked closer. It seems Holland Park is next on TfL’s upgrade hit list. This may be a blessing for some as the station is starting to look particularly tired and dated. On the other hand I’ve always been rather fond of Holland Park’s very retro signage and décor. Go have a look whilst you can, it’ll be gone by January!
Mind the stickers.
Tottenham Court Road is open for business again! … And all of a sudden the line diagrams are out of date. Stickers are coming. Ones that will return the status of the station and restore it’s mapped interchange with the Northern Line. Or are they?
TfL usually like to get as much use out of the diagrams as possible overlaying the maps with stickers until enough information has changed to warrant a new print. In January Stratford will move from Zone 3 to Zone 2 which will require one hell of a large sticker. So large in fact that are TfL going to wait and simply re-print new line diagrams?
TfL will be keen to show off their refurbished Tottenham Court Road as well as the fare savings the Zonal boundary change will create for Stratfordites so I predict we wont have to wait long to find out.
