Closures to London Overground coming!
You will probably be aware of the London Overground closures coming from Monday 1st September 2008. I wrote an earlier blog sometime ago about the closures in detail. Click here for full details.
In summary, the following closures will take place:
- Gospel Oak – Willesden Junction: 1st September to 17th November 2008.
- Gospel Oak – Barking line: 1st September to 29th September 2008.
- Gospel Oak – Camden Road: 22nd September to 29th September 2008.
Replacement bus services are planned during the closure. Although the Watford Junction – Euston line is unaffected, the route will be altered so that Watford Junction trains will go towards Stratford via Primrose Hill on Mondays – Saturdays. The normal route will run only on Sundays. The West London line runs as normal (Willesden Junction to Clapham Junction) and there is service between Willesden Junction and Richmond.
So what is going on? Well as well as track replacement work, there will be replacing bridges (mainly on the Gospel Oak to Barking line) and the widening of a tunnel (that being the Hampstead Heath Tunnel).
What do you think of these closures? What alternatives are you going to take? Let me know!
