Severe weather has disrupted several London Underground lines and services on the London Overground.
As snow fell on the capital on Saturday evening, Transport for London’s travel planner listed delays, suspensions and closures on a number of lines.
The Bakerloo line was suspended between Queen’s Park and Harow & Wealdtsone, with severe delays on the rest of the line due to adverse weather conditions.
Sections of the Central, Metropolitan and Jubilee lines were suspended as was the Overground service between Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington.
District line passengers were also warned of “severe delays” between Barking and Upminster, with minor delays on the rest of the line due.
Shortly before midnight TfL advised the Piccadilly line was suspended “between Acton Town / Uxbridge / Heathrow Airport, with severe delays on the rest of the line due to adverse weather conditions.”
In February 2009 heavy snow saw London’s entire bus fleet confined to its garages as Mayor of London Boris Johnson and London’s boroughs faced criticism for failing to properly prepare and ensure roads were gritted.
On Friday TfL published details of plans designed to keep the capital moving in the event of snow.
Officials promised “a fleet of 40 gritters, all of which can be fitted with ploughs, as well as gritting quad bikes, flat bed trucks and teams of grit layers” would be on hand to keep the capital’s roads open.
