COMMUTERS on the London 'Overground' network in East London face closures up to several days at a time over the coming months.
Engineering work is about to hit weekend services on the Barking-to-Gospel Oak service from Saturday fortnight, September 12.
Some closures could last several days for bridge replacement work just before and just after Christmas.
Additional signals are also being installed to handle more trains by to run more closely every 15 minutes, in addition to more freight trains diverted onto the line from Essex from the North London Line which is being rebuilt between Stratford and Camden Road over the next 12 months.

Track and engineering works next year will hit services every weekend from February to December, including Easter Monday.
