Transport for London has released travel advice for passengers travelling over the Bank Holiday Weekend.

There will be some service changes on some parts of London’s transport network. Some journeys will be affected, including travel to or from Heathrow Airport.

The closures have been planned over the traditionally quieter bank holiday to minimise disruption to passengers as much as possible.

Most TfL services will continue to run throughout the bank holiday weekend as normal. The main service changes will be closures to the Piccadilly line between Hammersmith and Heathrow/Uxbridge and on the District line between Turnham Green and Ealing Broadway all weekend (from 00:01 Saturday 25, and all day on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May).

A reduced service will run on the rest of the line, with trains approximately every four minutes.

Passengers for Heathrow airport should use the non-stop coaches that will be running between Hammersmith station and Heathrow airport via the motorway every 3-8 minutes. There are porters and lifts at both Hammersmith and Heathrow, and extra space for luggage and buggies. For a wheelchair accessible route to the airport customers should use TfL Rail, which runs every 30 minutes.

There will also be all-stations replacement buses running between Gunnersbury and Heathrow and Rayners Lane. These extend to Hammersmith and Terminal 5 during Night Tube.

There will be no District line trains between Turnham Green and Ealing Broadway on Saturday 25, Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May due to track works being completed.

What did the officials say?

Nigel Holness, TfL’s Managing Director for London Underground, said:

`Whether you are going away with the family or enjoying some of London’s exciting attractions please check before you travel this bank holiday. Most TfL services will be operating allowing customers to make the most of what London has to offer but there are some temporary changes to be aware of.’
