Will you be travelling around east London this weekend or next week?

Here are some of the planned roadworks and railway disruptions across Havering, Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham that could affect your journey from tomorrow - Saturday, July 16 - until next Friday.



On Sunday - July 17 - services will not run on the Rainham line due to Network Rail undertaking overhead line work between Barking and Grays.

Rail replacement buses will run between Upminster and Grays via Rainham; passengers travelling to/from Dagenham Dock may use the EL2 or 287 services.

Also on Sunday, Basildon line services will be diverted to start from/terminate at London Fenchurch Street and will also call at West Ham.

This is due to Network Rail undertaking engineering work between Barking and Liverpool Street.

A reduced c2c service will run on Monday and Tuesday - July 18 and 19 - as a result of the "extreme heat" predicted for those days.


Planned strikes on the Night Tube - originally intended to last until June 19 - will continue until December 6.

This means that while services on the Central, Jubilee, Northern and Victoria lines will still run every Friday and Saturday night, their frequency will be affected.

Further information is available on the TfL website.

On Saturday and Sunday - July 16 and 17 - there will be no District Line service between Embankment and Upminster, or on the entirety of the Hammersmith & City Line.
