TfL (Transport for London) sends out a weekly email listing outages, strike updates and other information related to weekend works on public transport around the city and sometimes beyond. This travel blog got so cluttered with these that I stopped posting individual updates. Please click on the links here for the latest… You may also want to add the TfL apps (look on Google Play and Apple store) or Twitter links to your phone so the most current info is at your fingertips.
Please note than when you click on the Status Updates link on the TfL site, it may start you on the real time tab a good thing if you’re already out and about. There are also tabs for the weekend and “future” which allows you to key in particular date/s.
There only closures on the main Tube system this weekend is on the Circle line between Edgware and Aldgate via Victoria – which is just about the whole city center route – and on the District line around Earls Court / So Ken / Kensington Olympia / Ealing b’way/Richmond/Wimbledon .There are also disruptions to services on parts of London Overground and DLR and TfL rail. Click on the 6 month link below to see long-term closures for 2017 and 2018.
There is a long-term road works issue areound Parliament Square until August.
Wembley (boxing) and Twickenham (Army v Navy rugby) roads will be a mess due to events there on Saturday, 29th April as well as an event in Hackney on Sunday (Virgin Sport foot races including a half-marathon) that could make moving about difficult.
strike updates for National Rail (none at the moment)
Hologram Easter bunny in colors of the Tube lines. Cute!
