Avoid delays by using the Bakerloo line Ticket Hall at Elephant and Castle during essential lift work
While vital refurbishment work is carried out at Elephant & Castle Underground station to the lifts serving the Northern line ticket hall, passengers can avoid delays by using the Bakerloo line Ticket Hall entrance.
This essential work will start on Tuesday 4 March and in order to keep the station open the two lifts in the Northern line ticket hall will be worked on one at a time until the work is completed in late September.
Customers can still access the Northern line and can avoid queues by using the Bakerloo line ticket hall entrance on the other side of the roundabout.
Peter McNaught, London Underground's Operations Director said: `This is crucial work to improve the reliability of the lifts at Elephant & Castle.
`In order to keep the station open and minimise disruption, we will be working on one lift at a time and keeping one lift open in the Northern line ticket hall.
`Customers can avoid queues to enter and leave the station by using the Bakerloo line ticket hall entrance, where three lifts are available.
`The Bakerloo line ticket hall is just on the other side of the roundabout and a walking route will be clearly signed.'
Work will take place around the clock to allow for lift electrical and mechanical works, as well as removals, deliveries and other maintenance work on the station, to be carried out and for the project as a whole to be completed as quickly as possible.
There are frequent National Rail services from the opposite side of the Shopping Centre to and from King's Cross St. Pancras, Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and Kentish Town National Rail stations.
Access to the staircase will be limited for safety reasons.
