Upton Park station closed yet again

There will be more difficulties for Hammers fans travelling to Saturday’s game against Aston Villa with more engineering works on the tube.

For the umpteenth time this season, Upton Park Station will be shut for Saturday’s big showdown against Aston Villa.

The tube will be closed between Bromley-by-Bow and East Ham, meaning replacement buses and another headache for fans trying to get to and away from the ground.

The game is likely to be close to a sell-out and with traffic wardens and tow trucks as stringent as ever around the Green Street ground, it would seem that the lowest priority on Saturday whether on road or by rail are the fans travelling to the game.
