Queensway Station- Two sides of a coin!

Central Line users will be well aware that Queensway Station has been closed for over a year for refurbishment work.

The station was due to reopen last month. The reopening date was then put back to today- the station has not reopened.

Now I am not too bothered by the further delay, as the closure has meant slightly quicker journeys in and out of London. I do however accept that the lengthy closure will have been a pain for some. By the way, no sooner will Queensway reopen than Lancaster Gate will close, I think for three months. Oh dear.

Anyhow, back on topic, your homework for now is to compare and contrast the following two press releases. The first is from London Underground, the second is from Metronet...

  1. Queensway station opening delayed again
  2. Metronet completes Queensway Station
