(nor the central Met/District)

Who'd have thought that this would make it so hard to get where you want to
go in Z1

You have to find the alternative bus route/stop and the alternative journey
take "forever"

Of course it's my fault really for not putting my journey into the planner
before I travelled

Don't you get the weekly TfL newsletter? The latest one says this:

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.

District line
On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January, there will be no service between Earl's
Court and East Ham. This is due to track replacement work. Use alternative
Tube, local or replacement bus services. Rail replacement buses will run
from Liverpool Street/Canning Town to Barking.

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

So the Circle was running Hammersmith to Aldgate?

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

nope

I don't travel often enough (except by bus) to make such things worthwhile

well yes I know now

I was just commenting upon how inconvenient such works are, in the absence
of a bespoke replacement

"use local busses" simply doesn't work for some journeys (and that's
assuming you have access to the details of which local bus, and it stop, you
should use)

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)

So use a journey planner, such as TfL's, or Citymapper. These problems were
solved long ago.

There's a free way of knowing in advance, which you reject, then complain
that you don't know in advance! Words fail me.

I've already accepted my mistake

I repeat, I was just pointing out how awkward the alternatives are for
people who are unprepared

many less knowledgeable than me about how London busses work

On one bus yesterday, someone asked if they had to touch out when they got
off

and a few minutes later, someone came down the stairs and spent some seconds
fumbling in his bag for something, only just getting through the doors as
they closed - and what was he fumbling for - his card so that he could touch
out as he got off!

I'll never understand how they can still call it the Circle line when it
doesn't go in a circle any more. What was wrong with the Hammersmith &
City..? Or even the Metropolitan come to that.

Why do people have to mess with things that aren't broken..?
