Planned engineering works will see parts of the Northern, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Overground lines closed this weekend.

On the Northern line there will be no trains north of Archway station all weekend due to track replacement work at Finchley Central.

On the Jubilee line there will be no service between Willesden Green and Stanmore on Saturday, and between Waterloo and Stanmore on Sunday, due to maintenance work, essential tunnelling and points replacement work at Baker Street.

On the District line there will be no service on Sunday between Plaistow and Upminster due to line upgrade work at East Ham, and while tracks are replaced on the adjacent c2c route.

Hammersmith & City line trains will not run between Liverpool Street and Barking on Sunday, also due to line upgrade work at East Ham.

On the Metropolitan line there is no service all weekend between Aldgate and Northwood/Uxbridge, as well as between Chalfont & Latimer and Chesham, while track is replaced at Wembley Park and drainage work takes place at Harrow‑on‑the‑Hill.

On the Overground, trains will not run all weekend between Highbury & Islington and New Cross/New Cross Gate, as well as between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction, while platforms are extended. On Saturday, there is no service between New Cross Gate and Crystal Palace/West Croydon due to capacity improvement work and while Network Rail carry out electrical work.

On Sunday, trains will not run between Richmond and Camden Road via West Hampstead, nor between Sydenham and West Croydon, due to Network Rail track electrical work.

Lastly, The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon will also see central London roads closed and bus routes diverted on Sunday morning, including Hyde Park Corner, Parliament Square, Victoria Embankment and Westminster Bridge.
