The entire central section of the Northern line will be closed this weekend as part of the Tube upgrade works, alongside sections of the Central line and Overground network.
There will be no service on any of the Northern line through central London over the weekend south of East Finchley station on the High Barnet branch, nor south of Golders Green station on the Edgware branch. The southern end of the line is running up to Stockwell only.
Replacement buses will operate northbound only between East Finchley and King’s Cross St Pancras, and southbound between Camden Town and King’s Cross St Pancras.
Buses will also run from Finchley Central via West Finchley, North Finchley/Tally Ho Corner and Arnos Grove, for passengers to join the Piccadilly line.
Another bus service will connect Finchley Road, for the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines, with Golders Green, Hampstead, Belsize Park, Chalk Farm, Camden Town, Mornington Crescent and Euston, plus Warren Street on southbound services.
Buses will also run between Camden Town and Kentish Town, and on the southern section between Stockwell and Elephant & Castle.
On the Central line there will be no service on either day to stations west of White City, with replacement bus services operating.
On the Overground, there will be no trains running on Sunday between Clapham Junction and Willesden Junction. Valid tickets will be accepted on local buses via any reasonable routes.
