The further extension of the East London Line to Highbury & Islington is due to open next year and anticipation is building on the Stroud Green Road (Finsbury Park) hyperlocal site, although there is an eerie symmetry to the debate north of the river.
Just as we spent the best part of two years arguing with Lou about why people would ever want to use a service that only went to Hackney, north Londoners are now asking why they'd want to go to his local station of New Cross.
How we envy them the joy of discovery. Ah to be a young man again and see the ELL through fresh eyes!
The Highbury & Islington extension is expected in May 2011.
