Passing through Finsbury Park station is often a horrible experience, especially at rush hour. But it’s being made all the worse at the moment by the state of the Seven Sisters Road exit.
Paint is chipped off the walls, there’s leaks being soaked up by soggy sandbags and to top it off there’s now a disgusting smell to contend with.
The Gazette visited the station on Thursday last week and witnessed commuters visibly annoyed and having to hold their nose as they walked through out of the station.
Transport for London (TfL) told the Gazette it was sorry for the neglect to the station, which is a result of the redevelopment work at City North.
London Underground’s Nigel Holness said: “We are carrying out vital work at Finsbury Park station to make it step-free and create a new entrance and ticket hall.

“I’d like to apologise for the fact this has temporarily impacted on the look of the station. I’d like to thank customers for their patience and reassure them that we will do whatever we can to make using the current entrance on Seven Sisters Road a more pleasant experience while this work continues.”
