Transport for London have told commuters to stay away from Victoria tube station (one of London's busiest) for at least a year, whilst a £700M refurbishment takes place.
Work starts on the three escalators at Victoria today.
Transport for London claim, if they are to be believed, that the work "should" be completed before the 2012 Olympics.
Well, they have to say it will be finished by then don't they?
Does anyone seriously believe that this will run to schedule?
