London Tube closures for weekend of 5-6 July 2014

Here are this weekend’s Tube closures. Not much on, thankfully. But Le Tour is coming to London on Monday, 7 July, so the next several days could be a bit crazy. I just wish I could be there for the craziness. Foof! Check this link for traffic issues related to the event.

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

London Overground – Sunday only – Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction closed; also Camden Road to Willesden Junction via West Hampstead. Late 9.30 am start time on Sunday between Sydenham to West Croydon.

Bus schedules and road use – TfL has updated the info on the Hammersmith flyover work –  “… work is ahead of schedule … westbound carriageway closed from 22.30 Friday until 5.00 Monday morning. Buses in the area may face some delays. Last week’s advice for drivers to use the signed diversion route (the A40 Western Ave detour) to avoid the A4 Great West Road through Hammersmith” may still be wise.

Road issues this w/e – an event all day Sunday on Regent Street, a concert in Finsbury Park on Fri, Sat and Sun nights and a concert in Hyde Park on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights all present the possibility of driving headaches as well as shortened bus routes. (Don’t tear your hair out with road bunchups – take the Tube and visit the event/s)!

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.

Paddington – Exit only from Bakerloo line Sunday 29 June until late August 2014.

Bond Street – this Central line station is back in service

Gloucester Road – Piccadilly line trains not stopping until mid-December 2014
