Here is our weekly travel update to help you get around London this weekend, 6 and 7 October, and the following week.

Most of the network will be open with services running as normal so you’ll be able to get wherever you need to go, but please check if any of the following affect you.

From 23:20 until close of traffic, there will be no westbound service between these stations. This is due to track replacement work.

Rivers
From Saturday 6 October until late December 2018, the Woolwich Ferry will close while an upgrade programme is underway. Vehicles should use alternative crossings. These are subject to height, weight and width restrictions, please check before you travel.

Buses
We would like your views on TfL’s proposal to modernise the bus network in central London. Our consultation is the first step in delivering London’s first major modernisation of the bus network in more than 16 years.

The proposals would reshape the bus network to respond to current and predicted passenger demand mainly through frequency changes or restructured routes.

Bus users may be affected by the following this weekend. While we will try to maintain a good service, buses may be delayed, diverted or stop short of their normal destination:
