Interruption of travel in north and east London: from January 14 to 21

10:07 15 January 2022

Traveling to North and East London this weekend and next week?

We looked at the planned rail disruptions and major road works in Hackney, Islington, Tower Hamlets and Newham.

Here are some of the potential delays to avoid, starting today – Saturday, January 15.



Weekend night Tube services on the Central and Victoria lines could be severely disrupted from 7 p.m., with potentially little or no service through the night and into the following morning.

This is due to planned driver strikes, which TfL says could affect both lines every Friday and Saturday night until June.

On London Overground there is no service this weekend between Highbury & Islington and West Croydon/Crystal Palace/Clapham Junction – including the Night Tube service.

Also on the Overground, there are service changes between Gospel Oak and Barking between January 18 and 21.

The 11:30 p.m. train from Gospel Oak to Barking and the 11:35 p.m. train from Barking to Gospel Oak will not run.

Planned work will start today – 15 January – on the Bank branch of the northern line, meaning there will be no service between Moorgate and Kennington until mid-May 2022.

London bus route 733 will run between Moorgate and Oval via Bank, London Bridge, Borough, Elephant & Castle and Kennington from Monday to Friday.

On TfL Rail, a reduced service will run between Liverpool Street and Shenfield this Sunday.

Four trains will run per hour between 10 a.m. and 11:30 p.m.



Delays are likely at Farringdon Road until February 25 due to TfL works.

Halton Road is closed until January 21 due to G. network works.

One-way signals are in place Calabria Road until January 17 due to G. network works.

Further work on the G. network means delays are possible on Beresford Road until January 21.


There are two-way signs on Queensbridge Road until January 17th while the G. network works take place.

Delays are possible until January 18 on Hackney Road for the same reason.

From January 14-21, G. Network work may cause delays on Lansdowne Drive.

Lea Bridge Road is closed due to Thames Water works until 25th January.
