Circle line
On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January, there will be no service between
Edgware Road and Aldgate via Victoria. This is due to track replacement
work. Use alternative Tube or local bus routes.


So the Circle was running Hammersmith to Aldgate?

Hammersmith & City line
On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January, there will be no service between
Hammersmith and Barking. This is due to track replacement work. Use
alternative Tube, local or rail replacement bus services. Rail


Hmm; that implies separate work east of Aldgate East. I wonder if the
Circle was beefed up to compensate.


I also wondered if the Wimbleware line had increased frequency to compensate
for the loss of the "city" services

But I think not as all of the services from Richmond and Ealing were being
diverted that way (at least to High St Ken) so there wouldn't be sufficient
turn around capacity (I caught a service before 9am on Sunday and it was
definitely only every 10 minutes then)
