Post Storm Travel Update - Monday 28 October

All you need to know about your trip home

Following the storm earlier this morning, Transport for London have issued the following update:

"TfL services have coped well with the stormy conditions this morning. Tube, DLR and Tramlink services started up as normally.  At the height of the storm's impact, around 8.00am, there were localised disruptions on the extremities of six Tube lines, but by 9am this had been reduced to just three. North west London, where more of the Tube lines are uncovered, was the area most heavily affected by disruptions.

As debris has been removed in most locations, we are approaching a near normal service on the network, with the Bakerloo, Central, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee, Metropolitan, DLR, Victoria and Waterloo and City lines all operating a good service; however, currently there remain severe delays on the Piccadilly and District lines and minor delays on the Circle and Northern lines. On the bus network, all routes are operating, with some diversions and curtailments due to fallen trees. The London Overground is part suspended and London Tramlink is also affected due to a fallen tree at Coombe Lane.

On the road network we have extra staff in place to monitor and respond to any incidents, including electrical and traffic management specialists and teams in place to deal with any falling branches. We also have additional resources – such as pumping equipment – in place to deal with localised flooding.  

As the evening peak begins, we continue to advise all road and public transport users to take extra care when travelling, and to check before they travel using our real time updates on Twitter, at www.tfl.gov.uk or with National Rail and train operators."
