TFL have informed us that due to planned Network Rail track works, they need to close the entire Bakerloo line on the weekend of 18 and 19 August. London Overground services will also be closed between Queen’s Park and Watford Junction.
To ensure they can safely move the correct engineering trains, they also intend to suspend the Jubilee Night Tube services from 1.30am to 4.30am on Saturday 18 August and from 3.50am to 5.50am on Sunday 19 August.
There will be customer communications on the TfL network from 13 August, however, as this is likely to affect some Fryent residents, we wanted to inform you now.
A fully accessible bus replacement services will operate between Harrow and Wealdstone and Queen’s Park. A separate replacement bus service will operate between Paddington and Willesden Junction – this will also call at North Acton to allow for connections with the Central Line.
Willesden Junction’s Overground services between Stratford and Richmond are not affected and these connect to West Hampstead to the north and Shepherd’s Bush to the south.
Unfortunately, these works clash with a Tottenham Hotspur FC (THFC) fixture at Wembley Stadium. Due to a delay in the construction of Tottenham’s new ground, this match will need to played at Wembley on 18t August.
The alternative travel arrangements detailed above will be available for spectators along with Chiltern railways services from Marylebone to Wembley Stadium, which tend to be less busy outside peak times. The closure will be advertised on THFC’s website and the club will be contacting supporters directly with this information.
TFL have apologised for the inconvenience this will cause to Fryent residents in our area.
