London Tube closures weekend of 12-13 April 2014

This Sunday is the London Marathon, which likely explains why pretty much the entire Tube system will be up and running. There are, however, changes to the bus schedules in places, as well as road congestion. Click on the link above for more detailed info on road closures and bus schedule changes.

The following docking stations (Boris/Barclays bikes) are also out of service this weekend:

  • Christopher Street (due to construction works in the area)
  • Holborn Circus (road safety improvements by Westminster City Council)
  • Stonecutter Street (to enable tree removal in the vicinity)
  • Wansey Street (due to works by Southwark and Westminster City Councils)
  • Victoria Embankment (no longer available due to site development work)

Here’s is info on the Tube work for this weekend.

Embankment partial closure continues through early November and changes to Covent Garden thru mid-November.

Northern line – Archway to High Barnet/Mill Hill East

London Overground – Sunday only – Camden Road to Richmond and Clapham Junction to Willesden Junction starts running late – after 12.30 pm.

Long term change concerning Embankment station – Bakerloo and Northern line trains not stopping from Wednesday 8 January until early November 2014 due to replacement of four escalators.

Long term change for Covent Garden station (this will confuse the tourists!) – Exit only until mid-November. Also, on Saturdays and Sundays, westbound trains not stopping.
This is to replace two lifts (elevators).

Central and East London roadway bottlenecks – On Sunday, from 07:00 until 19:00 significant road closures will be in place for the London Marathon. Notable road closures include Rotherhithe Tunnel, Tower Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Westminster Bridge as well as all approaches to Thames Street, Tower Hill and Victoria Embankment.

Roads in the Haymarket area will be a headache until Feb 2015 due to a revolving circus of road improvements.
