New north side entrance to Finsbury Park Underground station, LUL Piccadilly and Victoria Lines, on 29th December 2019. This opened on 17th December 2019, almost a year late and there is still currently no direct access to and from Wells Terrace Bus station. Since 2016 when the original north side entrance closed, bus passengers have had to make a long detour under Stroud Green Road bridge to the Station Place entrance. From what I could see, when the hoarding (behind me when I took this photo) is removed, there will still be a short walk to Wells Terrace for bus interchange (at the moment, a longer walk via Fonthill Road is required) whereas the old north side entrance led directly to and from the bus station to the tube lines. The long sloping subway of the old entrance with its original Edwardian tiles has disappeared for good.
