London Tube closures and traffic headaches for bank holiday w/e 3-5 May 2014

Here are this weekend’s Tube closures. Remember that there is still a second strike action set for most of next week similar to this week. I’ll post any changes to the prediction described below. Hell, it’s bank holiday weekend. Leave town and chill out somewhere and come back on Tuesday or Wednesday or, better yet, make it your personal bank holiday WEEK!

Network Rail will be closing the West Coast main line between London Euston National Rail station and Watford from Saturday until 11:00 on Monday.

Central line – White City to Ealing Broadway/West Ruislip

Circle line – Gloucester Road to Aldgate via Victoria

District line – South Kensington to Aldgate East and Earl’s Court to Kensington (Olympia)

Northern line – Sunday only – Camden Town to Edgware

DLR – Saturday and Sunday – Poplar to Stratford; Monday only – Bow Church to Stratford

London Overground Saturday and Sunday – Euston to Watford Junction and Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction/New Cross/Crystal Palace/West Croydon ; Monday only – Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction.

Potential strike dates for the Tube are possible from around 21:00 on Monday 5 May until the morning of Friday 9 May.

Road disruptions – Temporary signals on Seven Sisters Rd (A503) until 5 pm Friday. An event at Twickenham stadium can make for slow going on Chertsey Rd between 1 pm and 5 pm on Saturday. A rally at Westminster Abbey, followed by a procession to St Paul’s will foul up the Embankment between 2 pm and 4 pm on Saturday.

Reminders –

Embankment – Bakerloo and Northern line trains not stopping until November 2014.

Covent Garden – Exit only until mid-November 2014. Also, on Saturdays and Sundays, westbound trains not stopping.

Bond Street – Central line trains not stopping until early June.

A few rental bike docking stations are out of service.
