London Tube closures – 18-19 July 2015

Here’s the link with information on this weekend’s Tube closures. Big chunk of the Circle line is down – which I think makes for a pain inna neck, as well as a stretch of District line that would normally be an alternative. 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.

Circle line – closed all weekend between Edgware Road to Aldgate via Victoria

District line is down for the weekend between Earl’s Court to Embankment.

You can see what a headache the above two can create when they occur in tandem, even though these are the only closures on the Tube this w/e. These are my most used lines when I’m in town, so I’m glad I’m not having to deal!

London Overground – just one late opening on Sunday (11.00) for the stations from Gospel Oak to Stratford.

There is a long-term closure on the Trams between Wimbledon and Dundonald Rd which began this past Monday 13 July and will continue until October.

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 – a parade from around 18.00 on Friday until 5.00 Saturday morning will create lane and parking restrictions along Edgware Rd.

Various road issues over the weekend in and around Lambeth (Brockwell Park), Farringdon (some sort of procession) and Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf will be chaotic on Sunday due to… well, the TfL email says ‘sporting event’, but not sure if this refers to the childrens’ theatre event that day or the beach volleyball. Or both. You have been warned.

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.
