The Tube is undergoing a huge and essential programme to upgrade its ageing infrastructure, which is vital to cope with a growing population and to support the economic development and growth of the capital and the UK. This work will continue to improve performance and deliver reliable Tube services for Londoners - with faster and more frequent journeys, fewer delays and, ultimately, 30 per cent more service across the network.
• Improvement works on the Tube, London Overground and Tramlink will take place next weekend
• To help passengers get around, a huge range of information is available online, via text, social media and other resources
London Underground, London Overground, Docklands Light Railway and London Tramways.
TfL continues to work hard to keep disruption to a minimum 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 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 www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/traveltools. The website also provides full bus replacement service information during works.
Passengers can check before travelling using the following tools:
• Go to www.tfl.gov.uk/check
• Via free mobile and email alerts, available from the TfL website
• Information on posters, leaflets and “service information” boards at Tube stations
• The London Travel Info 24hrs telephone helpline: 0843 222 1234
