London Tube closures – 11-12 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 weekend between Aldgate East and Upminster

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

DLR is closed both days from Bank and Tower Gateway to Blackwall, All Saints and Canary Wharf.

London Overground – service disruption all weekend between Gospel Oak and  Barking. Short day service on Sunday – Sydenham to Crystal Palace from 9.30 to 22.00 as well as a late Sunday opening (10.00) on the stretch from Wandsworth Road to Clapham Junction.

Road closures and disruptions listed here. Sorry – I’m too lazy to list them all. Hammersmith flyover has roadworks in both directions. Westbound Trinity Rd in Wandsworth is blocked until September. Tottenham is seeing Cycle Superhighway work thru mid-August. Central London – Oxford Circus/Regent St area will be snarled mid-day Friday for some sort of procession. Overnight Monday into Tuesday will see work around Trafalgar Sq / Strand / Northumberland Ave – get yourself over to the Sherlock Holmes pub beforehand (before 22.00) so your drinking time isn’t disrupted!

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.
