Travel advice for Tube passengers in east London

05 June 2008

Transport for London is advising passengers that some Tube services in east London will be significantly disrupted from 09.30 this evening, while army experts work on a WW2 bomb.

The device was found in Sugar House Lane, E15, on Monday, and is a short distance from the Hammersmith & City and District line tracks at Bromley-by-Bow.

Following a request from the police and the Army, all Tube services between Whitechapel and Plaistow will be suspended from 09.30.

The adjacent c2c service on National Rail will also be unavailable. Bus routes will not be affected.

The disruption is expected to last until after Friday morning's peak, and customers are asked to find alternative routes in and out of the Capital.

Tickets will be accepted on National Express trains to and from Liverpool Street and on local buses.

A limited alternative bus service will operate on a circular route from Plaistow, calling at Canning Town, Bromley-by-Bow and Stratford before returning to Plaistow.

During the closure, all Hammersmith & City and District line trains will run to Whitechapel.

To the east of the suspended area, all trains will run to Barking, with a small number running to Plaistow.

More information on how to plan your journey can be found on the TfL website.
