Brent Civic Centre opening hit by line closures

The Brent Civic Centre was planned as a 'public transport destination'. Unfortunately the nearest tube station, Wembley Park, will be closed on Sunday when the grand opening ceremony takes place between noon and 7.30pm.

No Metropolitan trains are running between Aldgate and Northwood/Uxbridge and no Jubilee trains between Waterloo and Stanmore. The Overground will not run between Richmond and Camden Road via West Hampstead.

The Bakerloo should be running, albeit at its slow Sunday pace and there will be replacement bus services for the Met and Jubilee. South Brent people in Kilburn Park and Harlesden have the possibility of the 206 bus although it is not very frequent on Sundays. It stops close to the Civic Centre. Otherwise there is the 18 bus (alight at Wembley triangle and walk) and the 297, 83 and 182 stop at Wembley Park Station (walk along Olympic Way and turn right). There is a longer walk from  the 245 stop at Wembley ASDA via Bridge Park.

What a pity that many in Brent's community will not be able to enjoy the celebrations, which according to information given at Wednesday evening's Wembley "Brent Connects" forum are costing the borough's Council Tax payers £98,000.
