Victoria Line improvement works - 2009/10 Season

As many fans will know, during last season we experienced intermittent disruption to tube services due to the ongoing engineering works on the Victoria Line.

Ahead of the new season, we have again been holding detailed discussions with Transport for London and London Underground in order to better co-ordinate engineering works around the fixture list.

We are pleased to announce that as a result of this growing partnership with London Underground, two closures which had been planned against our home fixtures in 2010 have now been cancelled and that a full service will now operate.

Unfortunately, in order to deliver much-needed major improvements to services and to bring a sustained end to the disruption our supporters have often faced, four of this season's home fixtures will still be affected by full Victoria Line closures. We can confirm the following fixtures affected will be:-

16th August 2009 - vs. Liverpool

12th September 2009 - vs. Manchester United

26th September 2009 - vs. Burnley

7th November 2009 - vs. Sunderland

We shall continue to work closely with Transport for London, London Underground and National Express East Anglia (NEEA) to seek to minimise the impact of engineering works around our home fixtures, to deliver real improvements to services and to continue to communicate all of the options available to fans who want to travel to The Lane on matchdays.

The Club will provide comprehensive travel updates prior to every home game, so please keep an eye on this website for the latest travel news.

Travel Advice for affected games

It is recommended that any supporters attending any of the games affected by Victoria Line closures should travel by tube or train to Liverpool Street and catch the frequent National Express services from there to White Hart Lane.

Please note, London Underground tickets will be accepted on National Express services between Liverpool Street and Seven Sisters or Tottenham Hale only. Therefore, fans travelling any further than this (i.e. White Hart Lane and Northumberland Park) will require a valid National Express ticket.

Alternatively, fans can interchange from the Piccadilly Line at Finsbury Park or Manor House rather than in Central London, and use the Rail Replacement Bus Service to Seven Sisters station.

This Rail Replacement Bus Service will operate a northbound service from Bus Stop R at Finsbury Park station or Bus Stop D at Manor House station, and a southbound service from Bus Stop A at Seven Sisters station.

London Underground tickets will be accepted on the following scheduled bus services:

· 259 between Finsbury Park and Seven Sisters

· 279 between Manor House and Seven Sisters

· 230 between Walthamstow Central and Seven Sisters

· 259 between Finsbury Park and Seven Sisters

· 279 between Manor House and Seven Sisters

· 73 between King's Cross and Seven Sisters

· 476 between King's Cross and Seven Sisters

· 4 between Highbury & Islington and Finsbury Park

· 19 between Highbury & Islington and Finsbury Park

· 30 between Highbury & Islington and King's Cross (boosted service)

· 43 between Highbury & Islington and Holloway Road

· 271 between Highbury & Islington and Holloway Road

· 393 between Highbury & Islington and Holloway Road
