Overground service will not be running from Camden Road to Stratford for a week during the Christmas period and on weekends into February while the Highbury Corner bridge is demolished.
The bottom of Holloway Road will be closed for three weeks over Christmas which means Highbury Corner, from Digswell Street to the roundabout, will be shut in both directions between December 18 and January 8.
Transport bosses say they are “taking advantage of the quiet Christmas period” to rebuild the structure supporting the road.
Highbury and Islington station will be open as normal, but Overground services will not be running for eight days from December 23 to 30. During that period there will be no North London line between Camden Road and Stratford and no East London line between Highbury and Islington and Dalston Junction. Weekend closures on the lines will run into February.
Three Arsenal home fixtures will take place during the road works. Despite none of them taking place during the closure of the Overground lines, fans have been advised to avoid using Highbury and Islington to get to The Emirates.

TfL said changes to walking routes to The Emirates will stay in place but fans travelling between Upper Street and Holloway Road after games may need to walk around the roundabout.
