Apologies once again for not bothering to post last weekend’s Tube disruptions. Two weekends out of three that the world had to function without my London Tube updates (yeah, like the city ground to a halt. As if).
Here are this weekend’s Tube closures. Not too bad as these things go.
Jubilee line – late opening from 11 am between Waterloo and Finchley Rd on Sunday
Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines – Rayners Lane to Uxbridge (not part of the route to Heathrow on Piccadilly)
London Overground – all weekend – Clapham Junction to Kensington (Olympia). Sunday only – Gospel Oak to Barking is shut as well as Camden Road to Willesden Junction via West Hampstead. The stretch between Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction opens late on Sunday – 8.30.
TfL has updated the info on the Hammersmith flyover work – “… work is ahead of schedule … weekend closures are no longer required on the westbound carriageway. Any additional work will be done overnight. Yahoo!
Bus schedules and road use – Click here for road works, traffic snarls and road-closing events. These include a street festival in Brixton on Sunday, Putney Bridge closure until October, road works near Aldgate that will mess up southbound Minories until May 2015 (lovely) and road closures around the ExCel centre on both days for the London Triathlon.
