Inner north and east London travel disruption: January 14-21

10:07 AM January 15, 2022

Are you travelling in inner north and east London this weekend and during next week?

We took a look at planned rail disruptions and major roadworks across 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 7pm onwards, with potentially little or no service through the night and into the next morning.

This is due to planned driver strikes, which TfL warns could affect the two 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 changes to services between Gospel Oak and Barking between January 18-21.

The 11.30pm train from Gospel Oak to Barking and the 11.35pm train from Barking to Gospel Oak will not run.

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

London Buses Route 733 will operate between Moorgate and Oval via Bank, London Bridge, Borough, Elephant & Castle and Kennington on 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 10am-11.30pm.

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