London Tube closures – 4-5 July 2015

Here’s the link with information on this weekend’s Tube closures – a couple of closures in the East End some London Overground. 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 Tube closures on the network for the next six months.

District line is down for the same period between Aldgate East and Dagenham East

Hamm’smith/City is shut from Liverpool Street to Barking.

London Overground – service disruptions Saturday only – Sydenham to Crystal Palace; Sunday only – no service between New Cross Gate to Crystal Palace/West Croydon; closures all weekend affect service between Gospel Oak and Barking as well as the stretch from Highbury & Islington to Shadwell.

Road closures and disruptions listed here. Sorry – I’m too lazy to list them all. No service on the Woolwich Ferry (I didn’t even know there was a Woolwich Ferry), southbound Trinity Rd in Wandsworth is blocked until September and Hampton Court all have some congestion issues. And, of course, the tennis tournament in Wimbledon will make parking down there a nightmare. Yeah, but Rafa Nadal lost his match today, so why bother going?

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!) Seems to me that Covent Garden access has been spotty for a year or more, sometimes without advance warning. Good thing Leicester Sq and Charing Cross are short walks away as alternates.

Tufnell Park station is closed until mid-March 2016.
