A Conversation for London Underground - Victoria Line
clzoomer- a bit woobly Started conversation Feb 19, 2006
Please excuse my ignorance but precisely why was it *decided not to open a set of Victoria Line platforms at Manor House.*? Specific safety reasons? Noise pollution concerns? Inconvenience? No major advantage in efficiency?
Thank you in advance.

The Victoria line was built to act as an express route linking the mainline stations of the northeast and south while taking the pressure off the overcrowded Piccadilly line. Since there were plans to build a platform level interchange with the Piccadilly at Finsbury Park, it seemed pointless to build another link between the two lines just a little way north. This would just add another stop to the express route, increasing journey times while not adding any useful connections.
