Harrow residents and commuters are urged to brace for potential travel disruptions on Saturday 29 July as National Rail strikes are planned, which may impact some District Line, London Overground, Elizabeth Line, and tram services.
To minimise inconvenience, local commuters are advised to plan ahead, check for updates before travelling, and allow extra time for their journeys.
London Underground’s Bakerloo Line will also experience service disruptions until Sunday 30 July, specifically affecting the stretch between Queen’s Park and Harrow & Wealdstone. During this period, there will be no service available on the Bakerloo line for Harrow residents travelling to and from central London. To manage their commutes, it is recommended to consider alternative routes via the Jubilee, Metropolitan, Central, or Piccadilly lines, London Northwestern Railway services, or local bus routes.
For those who usually rely on the Bakerloo Line to travel between Queen’s Park and Harrow & Wealdstone, the following local bus routes have been arranged as alternative transportation options: 18, N18, 36, 112, 266, 487, 718, and 719. Notably, bus routes 718 and 719 have been introduced as temporary measures to cater to the increased demand during the line closure.
Bus route 718 will operate daily at 10-minute intervals, providing crucial connectivity between Queen’s Park and Harrow & Wealdstone for Harrow residents. Similarly, bus route 719 will be available from 07:00 to 19:00, Monday to Friday, running every 15 minutes between Wembley Park and Queen’s Park.
People are encouraged to stay informed about the latest travel updates and plan their journeys accordingly to mitigate any inconveniences caused by the strikes and service disruptions.
