Improvement works at Finsbury Park station

Two new lifts opened to the public on 28 January 2019. They serve the northbound and southbound Victoria and Piccadilly line platforms, making the station step-free from street level to the trains.

Tfl are working with City North Finsbury Park Ltd to open the new entrance accessed from Wells Terrace and Goodwin Street.

The staircase serving the northbound Piccadilly and Victoria line platforms is open again now that Tfl have finished building a lift shaft.

Tfl are now building the lift shaft to the southbound Victoria and Piccadilly line platforms. All staircases serving these platforms are now open.

The station will be busier than normal so follow signs and staff directions, and allow extra time for your journey.

 Customers switching between the Victoria and Piccadilly lines may find it easier to change at King’s Cross St. Pancras.
