London Tube closures for weekend of 21-22 June 2014

Here are this weekend’s Tube closures.

Circle line – Gloucester Road to Edgware Rd via Bayswater

Jubilee line – late opening at 11 am Sunday between Waterloo to Finchley Road

District line – Earl’s Court to Wimbledon; check the TfL link for bus service to Southfields if you’re headed to the tennis before the main draw (I assume there is tennis before the main draw – like qualifying or similar) which starts on Monday.

London Overground Saturday – Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction/New Cross/
Crystal Palace/West Croydon; Sunday – Camden Road to Willesden Junction via West Hampstead; Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction/New Cross/ New Cross Gate; Sydenham to Crystal Palace

Bus schedules and road use – TfL’s info regarding the flyover says – “The Hammersmith flyover is closed eastbound this weekend. It is closed in one direction for the next (several) weekends to allow for resurfacing and waterproofing work. This is part of the final phase of the strengthening work. Each weekend closure is from 22:30 Friday until 05:00 Monday. These closures are eastbound until Monday 30 June and westbound from Friday 4 July until Monday 4 August. Buses in the area may face some delays. Drivers who are able to do so are advised to plan their journeys and use the signed diversion route to avoid the A4 Great West Road through Hammersmith“.

Road issues this w/e – a march on Saturday afternoon from Marylebone to Westminster via Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Sq will add to the day’s busyness; rally at Parliament Sq to follow around 6pm. Sunday thrills include a running event near Hackney, E London between 6.30 am and 2 pm,  another road race in the City from 7.30 am to 1 pm set from St Paul’s towards Bank. Finally, Regent St will be closed most of Sunday, so bus routes will end before Oxford St. Fun fun fun.

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

Bond Street – this Central line station is back in service
