Here is our weekly travel update to help you get around London this weekend, 1/2 August. Most of the network will be open with services running as normal, but please check if any of the following affect you.

Annual Prudential RideLondon weekend of cycling
The annual Prudential RideLondon weekend festival of cycling is taking place this weekend. There are lots of places to watch the events. Roads and bridges on and around the routes will be closed to traffic. Road users are advised to avoid the affected areas wherever possible. Buses will be on diversion or stop short of their destinations.
On Saturday, the event routes are in the City and Westminster. Roads will be closed from 06:00 until 18:00
On Sunday, the event route is between east, central and southwest London and Surrey. There will be extensive road and bridge closures throughout the day; roads will be closed from 04:00 and will re-open in phases once the event has passed and it is safe to do so

Tube and Rail will be the best way to get around and enjoy the weekend. For details and to know your travel options, including where to watch the events, please visit tfl.gov.uk/prudentialridelondon

Potential Tube strike
The ASLEF, RMT, Unite and TSSA unions are currently planning strike action next week, affecting London Underground. If this goes ahead, Tube services will begin to reduce from late afternoon on Wednesday 5 August. Tube journeys would need to be completed by 18:30, and we would ask you travel earlier where possible. There will be no Tube service at all on Thursday 6 August. All other public transport services and roads would, of course, be much busier than usual.

We will be issuing detailed travel advice to customers as soon as we can next week. For the most up-to-date information, please click here

London Underground
We are undertaking a comprehensive improvement programme across London’s transport network, including the modernisation of the Tube.
