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 is also the high probability that additional bottlenecks will be in place due to the Parsons Green Tube train attack that occurred Friday morning.
The closures on the main Tube system for Saturday are on the Circle and Hamm/city lineser between Edgeware Rd and Hammersmith stations. On Sunday, the stretch between Aldgate and Wembley Park has no Metropolitan line service. Friday night service will be interrupted on the Northern line from Charing X to Stockwell between .45 past midnight until 1.30 Saturday morning.

The Staples Corner flyover still a mess for the next week or 2. (Is there even an alternative?)

Hologram Easter bunny in colors of the Tube lines. Cute!
