Victoria Station remains “crowded hell hole”, despite TfL warnings to steer clear

9th Mar 16 11:30 am

Victoria Station is a crowded hellhole it has been confirmed.

Have you been to Victoria over the past few years? It’s one of London’s most unpleasant building sites. Across several streets, the air is full of dust, hoardings blot out the view, pneumatic drills pound, buildings are either being torn down or are being cobbled together, and the atmosphere is rent by what sounds like dinosaurs dying in pain.

In the midst of the horror squats Victoria Station. It is one of London’s busiest commuter centres, rammed with both humans and trains.

Tube bosses yesterday warned passengers to avoid the station during rush hour due to heavy overcrowding.

But it is an essential thoroughfare, so the warning was basically telling people not to come to work at the usual time. This is not a decision most employees have power over.

This morning the human tide at Victoria swelled to astonishing levels as a faulty train caused further disruption to the already miserable experience.

“No photo can adequately illustrate how much of a crowded hell-hole Victoria station is this morning,” wrote articulate Twitter user @IanHeydon.

He accompanied his words with an illustration that probably doesn’t quite do justice to the confinement and frustration he was enduring.


Nonetheless, you can see the absurd backlog of people who can’t even reach the Tube station entrance.
