All,

Here is our weekly travel update to help you get around London this weekend, 26/27 September. Most of the network will be open with services running as normal, but please check if any of the following affect you.

Rugby World Cup 2015
Rugby World Cup 2015 takes place until Saturday 31 October. There are 14 matches left across three London venues – The Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium.

The transport network serving Stratford will be busier than usual later today, Thursday. This is due to Rugby World Cup 2015, as well as an event taking place at The O2 tonight.

Tube and rail stations will be affected from 17:00 until 19:30 and from 21:40 until midnight. Buses in the area may be delayed, diverted or stop short of their normal destination. Certain roads will be closed, including Westfield Avenue from 18:00 and Montfitchet Road and Pool Street from 20:30.

On Saturday evening, another match will take place at Twickenham Stadium and on Sunday afternoon, a match will take place at Wembley Stadium.

If you are travelling in the area you may experience delays. Please consider re-timing your travel or seeking alternative routes.
