London Tube closures and start of RWC – 19-20 Sep 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.

Check this link for RWC traffic issues for the next six weeks.

Looks as though someone understands that w/e Tube work should stay away from the west side of the city even if the only RWC 2015 match at Twickenham is Friday. For general advice on London maps — For all matches at Twickenham, part of A316 Chertsey Road will be closed. Road users should plan alternate routes and avoid travelling in the area.

Here is the link for this weekend.

District line is shut between Aldgate East and Upminster both days.

Hamm’smith/City line closure between Liverpool Street and Barking both days.

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

London Overground multiple closures all weekend – Liverpool Street to Seven Sisters/Walthamstow Central; Highbury & Islington to Shadwell; Surrey Quays to New Cross.

Sunday will see no service on TfL Rail (a new Tube extension from Liverpool St; maybe it will get a new name in future) from Gidea Park to Shenfield (which is the end of this line in zone 9).

There is a long term closure on the stretch of London Tram from Wimbledon to Dundonald Road until October sometime. Also the stretch from Reeves Corner to East Croydon is down this weekend.

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.

Warren St station used for exit and interchange only between 0730 and 1000 Mon thru Fri until late October.

Road closures and diversions are numerous – central and NW London, Stratford, Wembley and Woodford.  Click here for bus route changes. There are a bunch of these too!

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.
