A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Arsenal Football Club has published the following travel advice at www.arsenal.com
The club would like to make supporters aware of travel issues around Emirates Cup 2015 on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July.
London Overground services
London Overground services will be suspended between Highbury & Islington and New Cross/Crystal Palace/West Croydon/Clapham Junction on both days of the Emirates Cup.
Supporters travelling to and from Emirates Stadium by train are advised to use the Victoria line or the Piccadilly line instead. The Great Northern (Hertford Loop) service to Finsbury Park will also be running as normal.
Highbury & Islington
Access to Highbury and Islington station will be significantly reduced during the Emirates Cup weekend.
Although Highbury and Islington Station will be open, construction work means that entry to the station will be slow on both matchdays, and supporters are encouraged to consider alternative travel routes.
Fans walking to the stadium should also note that the construction work at the station will restrict the walking route between Upper Street and Holloway Road. Pedestrians will need to cross the Highbury Corner roundabout or use Liverpool Road to travel between Upper Street and Holloway Road.
Television coverage on both days will be by BT Sport 1.
