Tube and rail travel warning

Weekend travel plans could be hit by suspensions - check before you start journey

Planned improvement works this weekend will hit underground and Overground services.

Passengers are urged to “check before you travel” and allow extra journey time where necessary.

Among problems likely to affect East London Tube users are: Blackfriars Tube station on the District and Circle lines will be closed until late this year for redevelopment works while Cannon Street Tube station will be closed for redevelopment works every weekend until mid-2012 and Farringdon Tube station on the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines is closed on Saturday for improvement works.

The District line will be suspended on Saturday between Bromley-by-Bow and East Ham due to track replacement work as will the Hammersmith & City line between Liverpool Street and Barking.

Sunday’s service on London Overground’s Stratford - Richmond service is not operating
