Network Rail will be carrying out essential engineering work in the Highbury & Islington area starting from the Christmas / New Year period and this is expected to continue until March. Transport for London will therefore initially operate night services from New Cross Gate to Dalston Junction, and then from March 2018 operate to Highbury & Islington.  Officers will be in touch with your office once an exact date in March is confirmed, as this is dependent on the engineering works mentioned.
