WEST Hampstead traders have slammed the ongoing weekend closure of the Jubilee line, saying it is putting them out of business.
The upgrade of the line, which also affects Swiss Cottage, has seen frequent closures of huge swathes of the line on most weekends.
Traders and restaurant owners in West Hampstead say they cannot cope with any more pressure given the current economic climate.
Siba Kannan, from Elephant Walk restaurant, said: "It has been going on for months and it is definitely affecting West End Lane and the businesses here. This is a destination place at the weekend and the closures are making it very difficult for us. Businesses have been suffering, especially restaurants and bars because we are not getting as many customers - it is killing off trade.
