Old Street station exit only during morning peak

From 2 November to August 2021, Old Street station (near our City Road site) will be exit only during the morning peak travel period (7.00-10.00am). This will enable Transport for London (TfL) to safely complete the construction of a new main entrance to the station.

There will also be some temporary disruption to bus services while TfL make changes to the roundabout traffic flow. 


Thursday 29 October update on bus services all day Friday, saturday and Sunday - please check www.tfl.gov.uk/bus/status before you travel for routes 21, 43, 55, 76, 141, 205, 214, 243 and 271.:

21, 43, 76, 141 – Unaffected

214 – Will terminate at Angel, patients and staff should complete their journey on the tube via Old Street station

271 – Travel to and from the north will be unaffected – the stop nearest City Road will be the terminus this weekend.

55, 243, N55 – Will be diverted via Shoreditch High Street, the nearest stop will be over 200m from City Road. We suggest the tube could be more convenient for staff and patients.

There will be no bus services from the City or Bank to Old Street over the weekend.

Old Street station will not be affected by any of this work between Friday 30 October and Sunday 1 November, tubes and trains will run as normal.


The green line will be maintained and patients will still be able to enter Old Street station if they show their appointment letter or text. The route through the station will be unchanged and TfL marshals will be on hand to assist you.

Staff will also be able to enter Old Street station by showing their Moorfields pass.

The project will update Old Street station and roundabout, with a new layout, improved accessibility (including a lift) and a better flow of passengers, cyclists and pedestrians.

Once completed in 2022, Old Street roundabout will have new and improved pedestrian crossings as well as segregated cycle lanes. A new public space between Moorfields and the brand new entrance to Old Street station will make it easier and safer to walk into and around the station and change between trains and buses.
