Transport for London (TfL) have advised customers planning to use the Piccadilly Line this weekend to expect longer journeys, thanks to planned engineering work.

TfL say that the work on the Piccadilly and District lines on the London Underground is in order to replace track at Turnham Green and signalling points at Acton Town.

This weekend there will be no service between Hammersmith and Northfields/ Uxbridge as well as no service between West Kensington and Ealing Broadway / Richmond .

Travel advice and alternate routes have been issued however, with travellers going to Heathrow told to head to Ealing Broadway Tube station and catch an express replacement bus.

To travel into central London from Heathrow customers can get the Piccadilly line to Boston Manor and change there for the rail replacement bus to Ealing Broadway for the Central line.

TfL warned that trains still running on the Piccadilly Line will be reduced and will be very busy but following the work, trains will be able to run faster and more smoothly through the area, with fewer delays.

David Waboso, LU's director of capital programmes, said: “Our engineers will be working around the clock this weekend to carry out this vital improvement work.

"I am sorry for the disruption to customers during the closure, which we are keeping as short as possible.

“When the work is completed by the early hours of Monday morning, the track will be immediately more reliable and trains will be able to travel faster through the area.”
