During the temporary closure of Liverpool Street Bus Station, an access passage connecting the new Elizabeth line ticket hall to Liverpool Street Tube station was built adjacent to the bus station. When the bus station re-opens this weekend, bus routes 11, 23, 133, N11 and N133 will serve it. Bus route 153, which is currently only running as far as Moorgate, Finsbury Square will also return to the bus station.
