Londoners have been warned to check before they travel this Easter weekend with planned closures on the TfL network.

Although roads are already expected to be busy, those using public transport for Easter days out should also plan their journeys.

Most of the Transport for London (TfL) network will be operating as usual, but a handful of services will experience closures to allow for necessary maintenance and improvement works.

Customers are urged to use TfL's Journey Planner or the TfL Go app to stay updated about any closures and navigate any last-minute service changes.

Glynn Barton, TfL's Chief Operating Officer, said: "The majority of our network will be running over the Easter weekend to help everyone make the most of the city.

"However, there will be some closures to allow for essential safety works and service upgrades and we advise customers to plan ahead and check their routes before traveling to ensure a smooth journey."

TfL also added that options like Santander Cycles, rental e-scooters, Victoria Coach Station, taxi services, and private hires will remain available throughout the Easter period.

Elizabeth Line

The Elizabeth line will close through the central section, from Paddington to Abbey Wood and Shenfield.

A reduced service will be run between Paddington and Maidenhead/Heathrow Terminal 4.

Westbound services from Shenfield will terminate at London Liverpool Street station, above ground, and will not stop at Whitechapel station.

These closures are necessary for signalling software updates, aimed at reducing delays and improving the reliability of journeys.

London Overground

The London Overground will not run from Highbury & Islington to New Cross Gate, New Cross, and Clapham Junction during the whole weekend.

This also includes no Night Overground services.

On Sunday, March 31, the line between Sydenham and Crystal Palace will also be suspended.

Replacement buses will be available during the day.

The closures have been scheduled to allow for station improvements at Surrey Quays and improve the signalling on the Crystal Palace branch.

The Overground will also not run from Easter Sunday to Bank Holiday Monday from Liverpool Street to Enfield Town, Cheshunt, and Chingford.

Docklands Light Railway (DLR)

The DLR will not run between Stratford and West India Quay, Westferry and Canning Town, and Tower Gateway and Shadwell.

The closures aim to replace parts of the track, an essential step to ensure safety, reliability, and a smoother ride for customers.

London Trams

London Trams will not run from East Croydon to Beckenham Junction, Elmers End, and New Addington, from Good Friday all the way until Wednesday, April 24.

This is to allow critical works to take place at East Croydon and Sandilands Junction.

Tram replacement bus services, as well as more regular buses in the local areas, will be available.

London Underground and the rest of the TfL network

TfL has confirmed that the remaining parts of the network, including all Tube, Bus, Cycle and Cable Car services are expected to run smoothly this Easter weekend with no planned engineering works in place.
