London Tube closures 8-9 October 2016 and Tower Bridge

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

Long-term traffic issueTower Bridge is closed to all traffic for the rest of the year (well, 30 December, technically). Gotta keep everything in good nick – and it sounds like they really will be working on everything. Alternate routes are signed for London and Southwark bridges. Have fun!

The weekend looks to be somewhat annoying in central London — Here’s the link for what is (or isn’t) happening on the Tube.

Circle line is completely shut both days. Painful.

Equally disruptive, District line from Embankment all the way to Dagenham East.

Hamm’smith/City line has no service between Liverpool St and Barking.

Track work on DLR will mean no service from West Ham to Woolwich Arsenal.

London Overground has a bunch of closures on the w/e – check the link above. Note, too, that the stretch between Gospel Oak and Barking is out of service until February 2017.

Sunday will see no service on TfL Rail (the new Tube extension from Liverpool St) between Stratford and Shenfield.

Road closures and diversions are numerous – late night roadworks in Chelsea, the usual traffic snarls around Wembley and Twickers for matches.

Most of Sunday will make for headaches in Central London due to a half-marathon. Click here for more info.
