How will south London public transport be affected by the Easter weekend?

Most Transport for London (TfL) services will run as usual over the Easter weekend but there are some changes.

Here is a rundown of what travelers should watch out for to avoid last-minute disappointment. 

London Overground

The London Overground will not run from Highbury and Islington to New Cross Gate, New Cross and Clapham Junction throughout the whole weekend. 

Those routes won’t have Night Overground services either. 

On Sunday, March 31, the line between Sydenham and Crystal Palace will also be suspended.

Rail replacement buses will operate in the daytime, and alternative London Overground services will be available

The closures have been scheduled to allow for station improvements at Surrey Quays and signalling improvements on the Crystal Palace branch. 

London Underground and the rest of the TfL network

TfL has confirmed that the remaining parts of the network, including all Tube, Bus, Cycle and Cable Car services are expected to run smoothly this Easter weekend with no planned engineering works in place.

London Trams

London Trams will not run from East Croydon to Beckenham Junction, Elmers End, and New Addington from Friday, March 29 to Wednesday, April 24.

This is to allow critical works to take place at East Croydon and Sandilands Junction. Tram replacement bus services and an increased frequency of local buses in these areas will be available. 

Customers are advised to use alternative routes, plan ahead and allow more time for their journey.
