Expect tons of disruption if you’re travelling to and from Brixton this weekend (Sat 13th/Sunday 14th October) as once again the utter bastards at Tfl have decided to close a vast chunk of the Victoria Line down for the weekend.
And it’s going to be closed the following weekend too. Raaas.
There’ll be no service at all between Brixton and Seven Sisters this weekend, so if you’re leaving Brixton expect another leisurely replacement bus tour around St Matthews Church amongst glacier-speed traffic.
My advice: take the overground train from Brixton to Victoria (it takes just 7 mins) and continue your journey from there, or walk up to Stockwell tube station and pick up a tube from there.
Check out TfL’s Journey Planner for more options.
Here’s TfL’s statement on the closures:
Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 October, no service between Brixton and Seven Sisters. Rail replacement buses operate.
Bus Service: Brixton – Vauxhall – Pimlico – Victoria.
Bus Service: Seven Sisters – Manor House (for the Piccadilly Line).
Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October, no service between Brixton and Highbury & Islington. Rail replacement buses operate.
