London transport update

LONDON VISITORS, and for that matter Londoners too, should be aware that the whole transport system is undergoing a major refurbishment which will not be actually fully complete until Crossrail is opened in 2017.  Transport for London (TfT) publishes a regular update on weekend closures.  This now comes out ten days in advance and is worthwhile looking at if you are planning to travel on a Saturday or Sunday within the Metropolis.  For the coming weekend neither the Docklands Light Railway nor London Tramlink has any planned work.  The Bakerloo line will be suspended on Sunday between Queen's Park and Harrow & Wealdstone due to Network Rail engineering work.  Replacement buses will operate, calling at Queen's Park, Kensal Green, Willesden Junction, Harlesden, Stonebridge Park, Wembley Central, North Wembley, South Kenton, Kenton, Harrow & Wealdstone.  The Circle Line is completely suspended all weekend due to track replacement work. Passengers should use alternative Underground or local bus services.  Also suspended is the District Line  between Tower Hill and Upminster due to signalling and track replacement work. www.tfl.gov.uk
