The Metropolitan Line south of Wembley will close earlier than normal for the next two years.

From Monday (May 16) until late 2018, Metropolitan Line trains on the London Underground will not continue past Wembley Park station from around 10pm on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays.

This means that if you want to travel to the 10 stations south of Wembley Park station after this time, you'll have to find alternative travel.

Transport for London say this long closure is due to track and drainage work between Baker Street and Finchley Road.

They say this section of the line runs in single bore tunnels, meaning that there is less room to work in compared to other sections.

A revised Metropolitan Line service will also operate north of Wembley Park station, with TfL saying that if you want to travel between Baker Street and Aldgate, you must use the Circle or Hammersmith & City Line.

The work also affects the first trains on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, with later departures.

Transport for London said commuters must check the revised timetable information before travelling.
