The two lifts at Tufnell Park station both need to be replaced. No plans have yet been finalised but TfL is currently looking at all options for carrying out this work as safely, quickly and efficiently as possible, and with the minimum of disruption to Tube customers and the local community.

The option of keeping the station open with only one lift in operation is being considered but may not be feasible. TfL will keep you updated as plans go through the approvals process.
