Overnight road closure this weekend as work takes place on Seven Sisters bridge

Region & Route:
| Eastern: East Coast

Network Rail is carrying out further work to brighten up Seven Sisters bridge in Finsbury Park. 

Overnight on Saturday 14 August, teams will install ‘Finsbury Park’ vinyl lettering on the bridge, as part of a wider project to improve the area.

For this work to take place safely, the section of Seven Sisters Road (A503) at the bridge will be closed overnight from 22:00 on Saturday 14 until 05:00 on Sunday 15 August.

A signposted diversion will be in place for drivers. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists, with a footpath open on one side of the road.

Network Rail has worked closely with Islington Borough Council and Transport for London on this project.

During this time, teams will also be removing the hoardings on the bridge.

We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
