Passengers  have been warned to expect disruption for up to three years as work begins on an underground passageway at Victoria Station in London.

Leaflets highlighting the disruption to journey for commuters were distributed yesterday, explaining that the work to convert one of the subways into a new lift shaft was the reason for the current situation.

Transport For London (TfL) had conceded that restrictions on entry to the station may occasionally be necessary and changing lines at peak times will take longer at the interchange from the Victoria line to the Circle/District line. The work is not expected to finish until 2018.

Transport bosses have urged those using Victoria station to avoid changing there, suggesting that they take different routes, the Evening Standard reports.
