Here’s the link with information on this weekend’s Tube closures – mostly the bottom edge of the Circle line ‘bottle’ nd some DLR on the fringe. Click here to see how lane closures along Victoria Embankment, among other locations, will foul traffic for the rest of the year. Fun fun fun!
Click here for the press release relating to line extensions from Liverpool St for London Overground and some fare reductions. Wow! And some rebranding (pull-ease!) with the Crossrail project. Do we really need that bit? Only the shareholders know for sure.
See the Hot Link on this blog page for planned closures on the London Transport network for the next six months.

Circle line – all weekend – closure from Gloucester Road to Aldgate via Embankment and District line is down for the same period between South Kensington and Aldgate East
London Overground – service disruptions Sunday only – all day Clapham Junction to Kensington (Olympia); late start (11.30 am) on the stretch from Gospel Oak to Highbury & Islington and a late opening (10.15 am) between Liverpool Street and Enfield Town/Cheshunt (via Seven Sisters)/ Chingford.
Road closures and disruptions listed here. Sorry – I’m too lazy to list them all. Watch out for a march on Sunday afternoon in Westminster. The Cut in Southwark is closed for the next couple of weeks. The area around Wembley stadium will be congested on Saturday from noontime onwards and Sunday will be crazy due to the huge SOLD OUT rock concert there (Summertime Ball) btw – Arsenal won last weekend, so I guess the party went on for quite a while.
Road – Farringdon Rd southbound will be a mess due to Thames Water works works (!) from now until the 28th June.
Tottenham Court Road station – Central line trains will not stop here until early December 2015.
Covent Garden station (Piccadilly line)- exit only until early November 2015; westbound trains will not stop here on weekends (keep on confusing those tourists!) I only hope I remember this if I’m in London before they’re done mooching around replacing those lifts.
