BALHAM UNDERGROUND STATION: From Monday 28 June until late December, there will be no down escalator service at all times, access to platforms will be via a fixed staircase. As customer demand increases, for safety reasons the station may at times have to operate as 'exit only' on weekday mornings between 07:30 and 09:30. At these times, or if you have luggage or buggies at any time, you may find it easier to use nearby Clapham South or Tooting Bec stations. Both stations are a short walk away or can be reached via bus routes 155, 249 or 255. If travelling with Southern, continue to Victoria and use other Underground routes.
