Are you travelling around north London this weekend and during next week?

We took a look at planned rail disruptions and major roadworks across Brent, Kilburn, Hampstead, Highgate, Camden Town and surrounding areas.

Here are some of the potential delays to steer clear of from Saturday, December 11 to Friday, December 17.


There will be reduced service on the London Overground on Saturday and Sunday (December 11 and 12).

At least 10 trains in each direction won’t be running between Gospel Oak and Barking at various times throughout both days.

On Sunday, the Metropolitan line will have no service between Wembley Park and Aldgate until 11am due to emergency works.

The Jubilee line will also be closed between Wembley Park and Willesden Green during those hours while the works are carried out. 

A replacement bus service JL2 will run between Stonebridge Park (for Bakerloo line and London Overground connections) and Willesden Green, calling at Wembley Park, Neasden and Dollis Hill. 

Underground passengers are also advised that there will be little to no service on the Central and Victoria lines from 7pm onwards on both days, due to planned Night Tube strikes.

There are no major disruptions planned during the week.
