Check Before You Travel – Saturday and Sunday 8 & 9 March 2014

To help passengers get around, a huge range of information is available online, via social media and many other resources

For live road updates follow @TfLTrafficNews or go to www.tfl.gov.uk/trafficnews 

 

During the weekend of 8 and 9 March the vast majority of the network will be operating as there are no planned track works on the Central, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, Victoria, Waterloo & City lines, and London Tramlink. 

 

Transport for London (TfL) works hard to keep the majority of the transport network open and to provide information and alternative travel options. Londoners and visitors to the city are urged to “check before you travel,” particularly at weekends, and to allow extra journey time where necessary.

 

TfL helps passengers to plan ahead, get travel information on the move and work out the best way home at www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews.   The website also provides full bus replacement service information during works. Passengers can check before travelling using the following tools: 

Sign up for emails on our website tfl.gov.uk/emailupdates

Go to www.tfl.gov.uk/check

Information on posters, leaflets and “service information” boards at Tube stations

Work to modify the steel structure work within the lift shaft is also required, adding to the complexity of the work.  Work on the remaining two lifts will take place from February 2015.
