HomePlan a journeyStatus updates Tube Dear Mr Sokolov,
From tomorrow, Wednesday 4 August until Thursday 12 August, there are closures on the Circle and District lines for essential planned works between:Edgware Road and Aldgate via Victoria on the Circle lineEarl’s Court and Aldgate East on the District lineEmbankment station is closed to all lines throughout the closure, please use nearby Waterloo or Charing Cross stations.
On Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 August, the District line closure will be extended from Earl’s Court to Hammersmith, Kensington (Olympia), Wimbledon and Edgware Road.
Services will return to normal on Friday 13 August.
To avoid a busier than normal journey, please plan ahead, travel at quieter times (which are currently between 08:15 and 16:00 and after 17:30 on weekdays, and before 12:00 and after 18:00 on weekends), and walk or cycle where possible.
Customers travelling from stations on the Wimbledon branch towards central London should change at Notting Hill Gate for Central line services. Customers travelling from stations on the Ealing Broadway or Richmond branches towards central London should change at Hammersmith for Piccadilly line services.
Green Park, Oxford Circus, Holborn, Bank and Earl’s Court stations are all likely to be very busy during our busiest times, with more customers changing between lines. Where possible, avoid changing lines at these stations at the busiest times by walking or cycling the final part of your journey.
Stations that have no service during this period all have nearby stations within a 15-minute walking distance and you are never more than 600m away from a Santander Cycle hire point in central London. Our West End walking map, our walking times between stations map and our cycling map can help you plan your walking or cycling journey around central London.
The Piccadilly line is not stopping at South Kensington station until 2022, due to ongoing escalator work. Get advice for travelling to and from the area.
Visit our website for more information about these closures.
The requirement to wear a face covering on the Transport for London network remains compulsory. This will provide additional reassurance as more customers return to public transport and as London recovers from the pandemic.
Customers will need to continue to wear a face covering in stations and for the duration of their journey unless they are exempt. Customers may be refused entry or asked to leave our stations and services if they are not wearing a face covering and are not exempt.
