London Travel Update for Weekend Underground, Rail, Bus and Road Users

This weekly London travel update will help you get around London this weekend, 18-19 March. With only one London Underground line affected by planned works, most of the network will be open with services running as normal. Please check if any of the following affect you:

London Underground:

Northern line

There will be no service between Archway and High Barnet/Mill Hill East from approximately 01:25 on Saturday and all day on Sunday. This is to allow for track improvement work at Highgate and High Barnet.

London Overground:

All weekend there will be no service between Romford and Upminster, due to Crossrail construction work and Network Rail infrastructure work.

On Sunday there will be no service between the following stations:
• Camden Road and Stratford due to bridge replacement work at Highbury Corner and Network Rail station work at Hackney Wick
• Wandsworth Road and Clapham Junction until 11:45, due to Network Rail track work

DLR:

There will be no service between Bow Church and Stratford all weekend. This is for Crossrail construction work at Pudding Mill Lane.
