TfL has confirmed which services will be affected by disruptions over the Easter weekend, with the bulk of the effects on the Northern, Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City lines.

There will be no Hammersmith & City line running over the Easter weekend and there will be closures on the District line between Tower Hill and West Ham, as well as Earl’s Court to Kensington (Olympia). These are to facilitate the removal of the temporary ticket hall at Whitechapel, as part of the Elizabeth line improvements at the station. On Sunday 17th April, the District line will be closed between Turnham Green and Richmond for Network Rail to carry out maintenance to the track.

Over the Easter weekend, the Piccadilly line will be closed between Acton Town and Heathrow, and Rayners Lane and Uxbridge for track works, so engineers can install new track and drainage as part of the Piccadilly Line Upgrade.

In addition to the ongoing closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line between Moorgate and Kennington, there will be no service from Charing Cross to Stockwell and Battersea Power Station, or from Euston to Moorgate on the Friday and Saturday. This closure will enable test trains to run through the new section of Northern line southbound tunnel at Bank station for the first time ahead of the current phase of the major upgrade work finishing in mid-May

The full details of the disruptions are here – be wary of the London Overground maps, as many of those are early mornings only.

In addition, there is currently no service on London Trams between Wimbledon and Therapia Lane until 14 April for track renewal work.

London buses will run a Saturday service on Good Friday and a Sunday service on both Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

National Rail is also closing Euston station over the weekend for major works on the West Coast mainline, and there will be mainline rail disruptions for services passing through Clapham Junction, Lewisham, and on the C2C line.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
