No one wants to be stranded at a station platform or stuck in traffic when travelling.

So if you're travelling in Hackney, Islington, Tower Hamlets and Newham over the next week, there are potential travel delays you should be aware of - from Tube strikes to emergency road works.

Here are some planned rail disruptions and major roadworks from tomorrow - Saturday, February 26 - to next Friday, March 4.



RMT strike action is planned across all Underground lines throughout Tuesday and Thursday, March 1 and 3.

TfL is warning of "severe disruption" on all lines, with potentially no Underground service at all.

Other services - including TfL Rail, DLR and Overground, as well as National Rail - are not included in the strike action but are expected to be much busier than usual.

People using other services from stations also served by the Underground should check before they travel due to possible station closures.

Underground services on Wednesday and Friday, March 2 and 4, are also likely to be severely disrupted during the morning peak before returning to normal later.


There will be reduced service between Willesden Junction and Stratford tomorrow night and throughout Sunday.

The 9.02am Willesden Junction to Stratford train will start at Camden Road at 9.24am and the last train at 11.03pm from Stratford to Willesden Junction won't run.

The last trains from Stratford will be at 10.31pm to Willesden Junction and 10.46pm to Camden Road.

TfL Rail

On Sunday - February 27 - there will be no service between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.

People are advised to use Underground connections between Liverpool Street and Stratford.
