Northern Line confirms split plans

I have received an email from the General Manager of the Northern Line, confirming that the Northern Line is already split between its Bank and Charing Cross branches at certain times of the day, with plans to extend this split further by the end of the decade. I have replied making clear again that I consider this to be a bad idea and asking TfL to consult passengers before implementing it - they currently have no plans to consult!

It transpires that the line is already split northbound during what Transport for London (TfL) calls "the AM peak". TfL's plan is that, from around 4pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday:
"Southbound trains would be scheduled so that all trains from the Edgware branch serve the Charing Cross branch, and all those for the Bank branch operate from the High Barnet branch.”
This would affect anyone travelling into central London for a night out and I do not believe that most people would welcome it.
