New land motion map shows the human impact on the UK landscape

New land motion map shows the human impact on the UK landscape
... Large civil engineering projects such as the works at Kennington Park, London, part of the Northern Line Extension, lie at the heart of a large subsidence bowl (red/brown on the map) measuring more than 500m across, just east of the Oval. This is most likely due to the sinking of a shaft which was completed in November 2017.

Fears over Kennington tube station safety - Southwark News

Fears over Kennington tube station safety - Southwark News
... Engineering works will bring no improved safety for commuters, despite the four-month Bank branch closure at Kennington station, say campaigners.
As reported by the News last month, from Saturday, May 26 until mid-September, Bank branch trains will not stop at Kennington to allow four new customer passageways to be built. ... Kennington will remain open for the duration of the work, with customers able to board trains northbound, via the Charing Cross branch, or southbound to Morden.
But the Kennington and Walworth Neighbourhood Action Group believes public safety is at risk during the planned works as there are no escalators at the station, and the sole emergency exit route is up an old spiral staircase. 
... A spokesperson for the group told the News: “Commuters will not be able to get on or off the Bank branch at Kennington for four months while TfL carry out platform level works for the Northern Line extension and yet there is no masterplan to address the safety issues that will only get worse once the extension is complete.”
The group are calling on TfL to reconsider its plans and improve access to and from the station and, in light of the on-going disruption, bring forward the re-zoning of Kennington to zones one/two. 
... “We have robust operational plans in place to ensure that Kennington station remains safe throughout the construction of the additional customer passageways. ...
