London Tube closures – 19-20 March 2016 and possible 1-day midweek strike

A late posting, so anyone who cares already knows about some of this…

All closures are in place for both days – Circle Line – entire line; District Line – Tower Hill to West Ham; Hamm’smith/City – Kings X/St Pancras to Barking; Metropolitan Line – Kings X/St Pancras to Aldgate. Also Liverpool Street to Shenfield is shut on TfL Rail.

Check the link for specific issues with London Overground.

Click here for bus schedule changes and here for road closures and diversion, some of which is duplicate info from the bus stuff.

As for the strike, this would be a 24-hour action on the Piccadilly Line starting at 21.00 on Weds, 23 March 2016. I’ll post a separate notice if this changes.

Anyone planning to use SouthWest trains to get to the Boat Race on Easter Sunday should know that the stretch between Clapham Junction and Barnes will be by bus. Probably means hitting the road early would be wise.

Finally, a long-term notice – Holland Park tube station is closed until early August 2016.

In case I get lazy and fail to post more for next weekend (entirely probable) – Hoppy Easter Everyone!
