Travellers are being warned that two Tube lines will be down and another two partially suspended so major upgrade work can take place next weekend.

On November 3 and 4 the entire Circle and Hammersmith & City line will be shut down while the District line will be closed between South Kensington and East Ham and the Metropolitan line will be suspended between Baker Street and Aldgate.

The closure will allow engineering teams to run test trains on the newly-installed signalling system around the Aldgate junction, where the four lines all intersect.

The new signalling system is part of works which promises to boost capacity on the Tube by 33 per cent when it is fully complete in 2023.

Stuart Harvey, Transport for London’s director of major projects, said: “I thank customers in advance for their patience during this essential closure, and advise that they should plan journeys in advance before travelling next weekend.”

Rail replacement buses will run from Tower Hill to Barking via Canning Town.
