London Tube closures – 20-21 June 2015 and a successful accessibility test

Here’s the link with information on this weekend’s Tube closures – mostly the bottom edge of the Circle line ‘bottle’ and 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!

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.

DLR – all weekend – no service between Blackwall and Beckton.

London Trams – the section between Reeves Corner to East Croydon stops running at 22.00 on Saturday and will not resume service until 10.00 on Sunday.

London Overground – service disruptions Sunday only – Wandsworth Road to Clapham Junction as well as the stretch from Gospel Oak to Barking.

Road closures and disruptions listed here. Sorry – I’m too lazy to list them all but watch out for a demonstration on Saturday afternoon in and around the Strand, Trafalgar Sq and Whitehall. Work on the East-West Cycle Superhighway will make a mess along points on Victoria Embankment this summer. Terrific.

Road – Farringdon Rd southbound will be a mess due to Thames Water works works (!) from now until the 28th June.

Reminders –

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.

Tufnell Park station closed until mid-March 2016 for lift replacement.
