Tube passengers have been advised to avoid Kennington tube station while essential Northern line maintenance work takes place from May to September.

From Saturday, May 26, Bank branch trains will not call at Kennington Tube station and although the Charing Cross Branch will be stopping, there will be no interchange between the different branches.

Engineering work is scheduled to take place until mid-September, and TfL has advised Kennington commuters to “use local buses, cycle or walk”.

Both Northern and Victoria lines are expected to be even busier than usual with passengers facing delays. Elephant and Castle station is expected to be particularly affected.

TfL says it is carrying out essential work to build new passageways between the platforms at Kennington station in preparation for the Northern Line extension to Nine Elms.

During the engineering work, more trains will be scheduled between Morden and Charing Cross, but the Bank branch service will be reduced.
