Buses will replace District Line tube services from Boxing Day onwards

Published: 23 December 2016

Residents intending to use District Line tube trains in the period between Christmas and New Year are being given advance warning that services will be disrupted due to engineering works.

Between Boxing Day and Friday, December 30 there will be no District Line services operating on the Wimbledon branch line.

Throughout this period there will be no District Line trains between Gloucester Road and the following stations – Wimbledon, Richmond and Acton Town, nor between Edgware Road and Wimbledon.

Replacement buses will be operating between these stations for the five day duration of the works.

For the Chelsea v AFC Bournemouth premier league fixture on Boxing Day, there will be no District Line trains running to Fulham Broadway so fans are being advised to use Earls Court or South Kensington stations and then walk to Stamford Bridge.
