Answered By:

The next phase of blockades on the London Overground network are due to start in Spring 2009 and will take place at weekends. The full programme of works for 2010 are yet to be timetabled. There are no plans to install a crossover at Finchley Road and Frognal. It is not clear what the flexibility benefits would be, however I would be happy for my officers at TfL to discuss the matter with you further.
