No service between White City and Leytonstone, including Friday and Saturday Night Tube

Use alternative Tube or Elizabeth line services or local bus routes. Night Tube customers should use Night bus route N8 to/from Liverpool Street, or Jubilee line Night Tube services between Stratford and central London.

Ongoing service disruption

TfL has apologised for the continued disruption on the Central line. It says engineers are working round the clock to address the issues, which has “helped deliver a more reliable service, while ensuring the safety of our customers and colleagues”.

Please plan ahead, allow more time for your journey and consider alternative routes if travelling on the Central line into or through central London.
