On the Network: September 2008

16 09 2008

Hi all

It is that time of round again to check out what is happening on the Tube network and London Overground this month…

London Overground closures – As many of you know, this month saw parts of the London Overground network closed for engineering work from 1st September. In summary, there is no service on the Gospel Oak to Barking line and no service on the North London line between Willesden Junction and Gospel Oak via West Hampstead. The Watford Junction to Euston service has been altered such that on Mondays to Saturdays, the Watford Junction trains will divert via the Primrose Hill junction to meet Camden Road to Stratford rather than go to Euston, while on Sundays, a normal service will run (although Willesden Junction to Stratford trains will run). All other Overground services will run as normal. 

Shepherd’s Bush (Overground) – According to weekend closure posters, Shepherd’s Bush Overground will be opening on 28th September. I will be checking out this nearer the time, but it will be exciting indeed!

Shepherd’s Bush (Central line) – The station building is looking good and it is set to be on target to open next month. I will be taking photos of the latest progress very soon, so check the Blog for more info!

Wood Lane – The station building and platforms look complete now. All signage has been placed up. The station will be open in October in which at the same time, Shepherd’s Bush (Hammersmith & City line) will be renamed Shepherd’s Bush Market. More details next month.

These are the major updates for this month. Check On the Network next month for a lot more substantial news as the above open!
