Finsbury Park Tube station improvements are being co-ordinated with a Network Rail station step-free access scheme and a private development adjacent to the station. 

Shortly before the planned closure of Wells Terrace, the developer informed TfL that they were not in a position to proceed with their work from 20 April. Once TfL had confirmation that the developer was not in a position to start works as scheduled, TfL communicated this immediately to customers.
