No Central London Tube upgrade work during the coming busy pre-Christmas weekend

13 December 2012

There is no Tube upgrade work in central London this weekend - as London Underground supports shoppers and retailers in the run up to Christmas.

Across London there are no planned works on any line, apart from a slightly later start on the Northern line between Camden Town and Edgware first thing on Sunday morning - with services starting at 8:30 southbound and 9:00 northbound.

There are also no planned works on the Docklands Light Railway, London Overground or London Tramlink.

Cannon Street will be closed most Saturdays for redevelopment work until September 2013 and passengers are advised to use nearby Bank, Monument or Mansion House stations.

The station is always closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Transport for London (TfL) continues to work hard to keep disruption to a minimum during any upgrade or maintenance works, and to provide information and alternative travel options.

Londoners and visitors to the city are urged to 'check before you travel' and to allow extra journey time where necessary.

TfL has a range of travel tools available to help passengers plan ahead, get travel information on the move and work out the best way home at

The website also provides full bus replacement service information during works.
