all,

Here is our weekly travel update to help you get around London this weekend, 12/13 September. Most of the network will be open with services running as normal, but please check if any of the following affect you.

Tour of Britain
The Tour of Britain is taking place on Sunday 13 September. Road closures will be in place in central London from 03:00 until 23:00, in particular in the Whitehall and Westminster areas. Waterloo Bridge will have restricted access for some of the day. Drivers are advised to avoid the area if possible.

Tube and rail will be the best way to get around central London on the day, although stations close to the route will be busier than usual.
