London Tube closures – 22-23 August 2015

Here’s the link with information on this weekend’s Tube closures. Nothing inside the Circle line is down – which makes life easier for the tourists. 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 – handy reference for when I’m too lazy to post a specific blog report.

District line is down for the weekend between Turnham Green and Richmond.

Jubilee line – no service from Finchley Road to Stanmore both days

Metropolitan line – no weekend service from Aldgate to Harrow-on-the-Hill

Victoria line – now through next Sunday 30 Aug – no service between Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central

London Overground – one weekend closure – Richmond to Willesden Junction and a couple of Sunday closures – Sydenham to West Croydon and Watford Junction to Queen’s Park.

There is a long-term closure on the Trams between Wimbledon and Dundonald Rd until October; result – a new platform at Wimbledon. The stretch between Reeves Corner and East Croydon opens late Sunday – 10.00 am.

Road closures and disruptions listed here. Sorry – can’t be bothered to list them all. Westbound Trinity Rd in Wandsworth is blocked until September. Tottenham is seeing Cycle Superhighway work thru mid-November. There is no southbound traffic thru Blackwall tunnel nights until 5am every day thru Thursday 27 Aug. Westminster has southbound restrictions thru mid-Sept on Abingdon St and lane closures thru late Sept between Parliament Sq and Victoria St.

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.
