London Tube closures and continuing RWC – 26-27 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.

Today’s RWC match at Twickenham is England v Wales so I expect the traffic on road, rail or foot will be pretty significant. 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 both days in two places – Edgware Road to High Street Kensington as well as Earl’s Court to Kensington (Olympia).

Hamm’smith/City line closure from Baker Street to Hammersmith both days.

Circle line has no service between Baker Street and Hammersmith/High Street Kensington. Fooey.

DLR is shut between Bank/Tower Gateway and Poplar/West India Quay.

London Overground has one closure on Saturday – Liverpool Street to Seven Sisters/Walthamstow Central. Since the Overground system isn’t on my regular Tube schematic, I thought it helpful to post the Overground system map here.

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, City and NW London, Stratford, Wembley, Vauxhall, Bermondsey, Purley and, of course, Twickers.  Click here for bus route changes. There are a bunch of these too!

This link lists major road works chronologiclly thru the end of the year. Most arerelated either to Rugby World Cup or the construction of the Cycle Superhighway (sounds vaguely oxymoronic but what do I know).

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.
