Its obscene to see so many deckers taken out of service to basically just burn fuel for the the benefit of a handful of people each day. I don't see why people who desperately need Moorfields can't go on the Northern Line through Central - it'd no doubt be quicker.

The reason for the bus service is that with the Wirral line platform closed not to provide a rail replacement bus service of some form would mean that Network Rail would have to go through formal closure procedures , as this work is only temporary the bus service is the best option. That is the reasoning behind the bus services when each loop station has been closed as well.

Note though from what I have heard there will be no bus service when the Northern Line platforms get worked on .
