Metropolitan line weekday closures

The track and drainage is being replaced to increase reliability and shorten journey times. This section of line runs in single bore tunnels which means there is less room to work in than on other parts of the network.

To speed up the work by allowing contractors longer on site each night, the line will close early between Aldgate and Wembley Park on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

These closures will not take place on Bank Holidays and for some Wembley events. The next Wembley events when the work will not take place are on Wednesday 2 November, Tuesday 15 November and Wednesday 7 December.

The closures will also be suspended from Thursday 22 December to Monday 2 January.
