TFL Easter travel information

April 4, 2017

Easter is around the corner, and we are encouraging our customers to plan their journeys in advance to ensure everyone can get around easily and make the most of London.

The majority of our services will be running across the transport network as normal. This includes the bus network, where customers can now get around for less with the new Hopper fare. Most of the London Overground network and most Tube lines are also operating.

However, we will be using the quieter Easter period to carry out essential improvement work, while minimising disruption to customers. Thousands of engineers will be working around the clock at a number of locations to deliver improvements to our services.

From Friday 14 to Monday 17 April 2017, planned work will affect some Tube and Rail services, including:

  • No service on TfL Rail from Good Friday to Easter Monday
  • No service on the Victoria line on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday
  • Upgrade work on the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines all weekend, meaning that Aldgate East to West Ham will be closed and there will be no service on the Metropolitan line from Wembley Park to Uxbridge and to Northwood. The Circle line will also be part-closed but the stations will remain open and will be served by other lines
  • Engineering and maintenance work on parts of the DLR, London Overground and Tram network across the weekend
  • There will also be some road closures, particularly affecting Wellesley Road in Croydon.

Full details of alternative travel options, in addition to information and maps of the work taking place over Easter, are available on our website, You can also check our social media channels for live traffic news and service updates before you travel, by visiting

Thank you for your patience – the vital modernisation work that we will be able to carry out will mean that our services can continue to meet the demands of London’s growing population.
