Default Earl's Court escalators

I see that Piccadilly trains aren't stopping from yesterday until next
Wednesday (inclusive) due to emergency escalator maintenance.

Anyone got any more details? Why not use encourage interchange elsewhere but
stop anyway and allow people to use the lifts and stairs?

On my Wimbledon-Upminster train people were told to interchange at South
Kensington, not the quickest if going West from Earls Court.

This BBC London travel tweet is from Sun 11 Sept - but a quick search hasn't
found mention of it since:

No mention of Holborn on the 'stations' tab on the TfL live travel news

It was there this morning. Perhaps its new, its the first time I've got off
at holborn for a few weeks. You could come off the piccadilly but not get on
to it.

I wonder why the lifts have been closed for so long? I had thought that
they were due to be back in service months ago.


That might have required somebody working hard. Unions don't allow it.
