The Waterloo & City line is closing for refurbishment from April til September, cutting off the commuters' favourite route into the City.
The official alternative is to go from Waterloo to Embankment and change there for the District line to Monument. However, Tubeworker strongly suspects that many commuters will not like this idea and will go to TCR instead.
And therein lies the problem. The escalators at TCR will still be out of service when the Drain closure starts. Would that have something to do with the two jobs being in different Infracos? PPP causing lack of coherence and potentially dangerous congestion? You think?
