London Tube updates – 13-14 September 2014

In addition to the usual construction and rehabbing disruptions, this Sunday sees the Tour of Britain in London, a bicycle race of 88 km through Whitehall, Westminster and the City. Click on the Tour link to get the route map, should you want to avoid the mess or find a spot to watch and cheer.

Here’s the link with the rest of the info.

The Chancery Lane station on the Central line will be shut on Sunday.

The only other Underground closure this w/e is on the Northern line but it’s a big one – the elongated insect-like lines from Charing Cross and Moorgate north through Kings X to Hampstead and High Barnet. Realistically, the closure extends to Embankment, since the Northern line is not stopping there. Having Embankment out of the picture made for a constant rethink when I was in London last week, though the fact that my room was equidistant between Embankment and Charing Cross made life a bit easier. This new wrinkle would make my location less than ideal were I there this weekend.

London Tramlink closure all weekend between Morden Rd and Ampere Way

London Overground has no service between New Cross Gate and Crystal Palace/West Croydon both days and between Camden Rd and Willesden Junction via W Hampstead on Sunday.

Reminders –

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

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

Bond Street – Jubilee line trains will not stop here until early December 2014.

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