Highbury and Islington Station
Highbury and Islington Station
In the less than three years since control of the North London line passed to Transport for London, there has been an ongoing transformation of this railway from a dingy threatening unstaffed 'Cinderella' into a modern and inviting line. The section from Gospel Oak to Stratford reopened on 1 June 2010 to reveal new platforms 7 and 8 in use at Highbury and Islington, seen here looking west, and a new footbridge at the western end of the station. Platforms 1 and 2, which had previously been in use, are at present closed and being refurbished for the extension of the East London line from Dalston Junction, which is due to be ready in 2011. The new Class 378 trains are now in service and although their 100% longitudinal seating is not to everyone's taste, they are clean, bright and air-conditioned, and the service frequency is now four trains per hour. All the stations now have staff in attendance throughout the operational day.
