London Tube and Notting Hill Carnival – bank holiday w/e – 29-31 August 2015

Remember – You can always click on the Planned outages link on this blog page for up-to-date weekend information when no current blog post appears.

As a consequence of several proposed and actual strike actions recently, TfL has decided to postpone the start of  Night Tube weekend service announced for September.

District line is shut between Dagenham East and Upminster all three days.

Victoria line has no service between Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central until Sunday.

London Overground closure all weekend from Hackney Wick to Stratford.

Sunday will see no service on TfL Rail (still dunno who this be) from Gidea Park to Shenfield.

There is a long term closure on the stretch of London Tram from Wimbledon to Dundonald Road until October sometime.

Ongoing station closures are –

Covent Garden station Exit only until early November 2015. Also, on Saturdays and Sundays westbound trains will not stop.

Tottenham Court Road station Central line trains not stopping until early December 2015.

Tufnell Park station Station closed until mid-March 2016.

Click here for road closures and diversions. Among them, Hammersmith Bridge Rd, Hamm Broadway and Shepherds Bush Rd.

In central London, no entry to Northumberland Ave from Victoria Embankment for the next several weeks. THAT will be a pain for drivers and buses.

There are also a bunch of National Rail issues over the weekend. Here is the list.

The big event this weekend is the Notting Hill Carnival. Several stations will be affected. Some are closed, others have extended or shortened hours. Here’s the list –

Ladbroke Grove (Circle and Hamm’/City) station closed 30/31 August due to the Notting Hill Carnival.

Latimer Road station 30/31 August open until 2330 for the Notting Hill Carnival.

Notting Hill Gate station Sunday 30 August exit only from 1100 until 1900. Monday 31 August exit only from 1100 until 1900, no interchange all day. This is due to the Notting Hill Carnival.
