REMINDER: Closure of some Brent & Harrow sections of Bakerloo line and London Overground next week



From Transport for London

We need to close part of the Bakerloo line and London Overground. This is so that Network Rail can carry out work to improve their track and infrastructure.


This means we need to close:

  • The Bakerloo line between Queen's Park and Harrow and Wealdstone
  • London Overground between Euston and Watford Junction

These sections of line will be closed between these dates:

  • Saturday 11 February to Sunday 19 February 2023


During the closure, a regular four to five minute service will continue to run on the Bakerloo line between Elephant & Castle and Queen's Park.


The track and associated infrastructure are in urgent need of upgrading. The works will make journeys more reliable in future.



During the closure there will be no Bakerloo line service at these stations:

Kensal Green, Willesden Junction, Harlesden, Stonebridge Park, Wembley Central, North Wembley, South Kenton, Kenton, and Harrow & Wealdstone,


London Overground

During the closure, there will be no London Overground services between Euston and Watford Junction. London Overground stations will be closed at all stations on this section of line except Willesden Junction.


That means there will no London Overground services at:


Euston, South Hampstead, Kilburn High Road, Queen's Park, Kensal Green, Harlesden, Stonebridge Park, Wembley Central, North Wembley, South Kenton, Kenton, Harrow & Wealdstone, Headstone Lane, Hatch End, Carpenders Park, Bushey, Watford High Street, Watford Junction
