Spotted in Friday's Evening Standard (Google on "shutdown between Moorgate" if you want to read it in full) is a report that the Northern Line extension is "due to open in September 2021, but there will be a 17-week shutdown between Moorgate and Kennington, after work to increase capacity at Bank station". No dates are given as yet, but while not directly affecting Angel tube, and hence Sadler's Wells, it will mean that at some stage there won't be a Northern Line service between London Bridge/Bank and Angel, for several months. Moorgate is also one of the tube stations for the Barbican, so travel to events there may be affected as well.
Just in case you aren't aware of it, there will be VERY major engineering works taking out much of "Southern Region" between Saturday 23rd December and Tuesday 2nd January: - No trains on Christmas Day or Boxing Day, as has become usual. - There will be no SouthEastern services to/from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge (there will still be a reduced Southern service) and Cannon Street, and stations local to these, over the period, which may affect in particular people aiming for the Coliseum and the Royal Opera House. - There will be no Thameslink services through central London. - There don't appear to be any Gatwick Express or High-Speed services to/from St. Pancras International on either Christmas Day or Boxing Day - but double-check, because Victoria appears to be open on Boxing Day. - For the other dates, a reduced and amended SouthEastern service will be running into Blackfriars, Victoria and Waterloo Mainline (that may have a knock-on effect on South West Trains, or whatever they are called now). Victoria is expected to be very busy during peak periods (you might need to use it if you're going to BRB's Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall). So, check that you have trains before you travel! This is supposedly the last time we are expected to bite the bullet before the Thameslink Programme is finished. Everything is supposed to spring into life, shiny and new, on 2nd January, with "all" services to Charing Cross/Waterloo East/London Bridge/Cannon Street restored (which will probably be a bit of a culture shock to many after several years of disruption!). Experience suggests that you might want to think about alternative arrangements for the first few days in January too, just in case http://www.thameslinkprogramme.co.uk/2017-disruption Here ends the public service announcement If anyone would like to add information about works affecting the other areas of London, please do so!
