The line has already suffered years of disruption, but Network Rail says that these works are to strengthen four bridges and replace 2 miles of track between Harringay Green Lanes and Upper Holloway. The track replacement works are unrelated to the derailment at the start of this year, which took out over 2 miles of track in the Walthamstow area.
The work will take place over ten successive weekends starting Saturday 22 August to Sunday 25 October.

A total of four bridges will undergo strengthening work. This will be carried out at two bridges at Beaumont Road and Capworth Street between Leyton Midland Road and Walthamstow Queens Road and two at and Sebert Road and Balmoral Road between Woodgrange Park and Wanstead Park.
Rail replacement bus services will run between Gospel Oak and Seven Sisters as well as between Barking and Walthamstow Central.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
