Hell is Underground. And vice versa

Actually, that may be a little unfair. But we travelled down to London for PicoCon last Saturday (happenstantially discovering jemck on the Tube a stop before South Kensington), to find that a remarkable number of lines were closed, either entirely or partially.

A look at the TfL website indicates that they're now carrying out a 10 year program of improvements, trying to update signalling to increase capacity, and refurbishing trains and stations. This is way overdue, of course, but it does mean that there are extensive weekend closures for the work required. Much of the initial stuff will be attempting to make improvements before the 2012 Olympics, so I'm expecting 2 years of weekend disruption until that work package is complete.
