It’s always good to boot up the TfL website to check whether the Tube line you’re planning to travel on has been hit by a delay, but they’re giving us a big heads up with this one.
Tomorrow (Saturday, November 11), five Tube lines will face closures, meaning we’re building up to a pretty hectic day of travelling on the London Underground.
Which Tube lines are closing this Saturday?
The entire Circle, District, Jubilee and Hammersmith & City lines will all be closed. Why? Because TfL is planning to install a brand new signalling system across all four of these lines, which will leave them out of action until 3pm. Buses are due to replace services across each line as work is carried out. Once this new system is installed, the journey times across the four lines are expected to become more reliable.
On top of this, most of the Metropolitan line is also facing closures on the very same day, with no service between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Aldgate until mid-afternoon. It’s thought that trains will resume from around 3pm.
Of course, some hitches are always a possibility, so it’s suggested that passengers frequently check the TfL website to determine their best route over the weekend.
A spokesperson told MyLondon: “The closure will facilitate testing of a transformative new signalling system that will improve reliability and journey times on these lines.
‘Rail replacement bus services will be in place, but customers are advised to check before they travel and seek alternative routes on this day.”
