Yeah, it was a bit of a deception during the Olympics, to pause the closures to pretend to the outside world that things are better than they are.
One can put up with occasional disruptions, but the worst thing is it’s like this every single weekend for years. Makes traveling on the tubes a miserable experience if the lines you were intending to use are down :-(
The only real improvement in this context from the mid-2000s is that the engineering works are at least slightly more restrained, less central, and tend to be rotated. But there’s no getting away from the fact that Londoners are in for yet another decade of delays.
