And yeah I know I've said it before, but it would be really nice if they could demolish/relocate - or at least hide/build over that fugly substation next door.

This is coming up in October-

Permanent Diversion to Suburban Tunnel entry from Grand and Northern Concourse

There will be a new way to access the Suburban Tunnel from October 2019 when the Grand and Northern Concourse entry to the Suburban Tunnel is permanently closed. Customers should follow advice from staff and signs to enter the Suburban Tunnel from a new entrance beside the former Platform 15 lift. Access to all Platforms 16-23 and Platforms 24-25 using the ESR Concourse will be maintained.



Looks like they're getting ready to demolish the stairs and escalators and push it back as in the render below.

Does rather look like whoever has the job of updating the tunnel map has gone on holiday.

MumShirl and Kathleen have been moving.
Nancy hasn't moved since last Thu/Fri so don't know what's up there.

Wendy should start moving again soon.

I haven't seen Kathleen move since mid last week at least. And I think Mum Shirl hasn't moved since then either.

How you write it will define it being different, not necessarily the core content
