Stations shut in Barking and Dagenham this weekend

Commuters will be hit by a double whammy this weekend with works on the Tube and Barking to Gospel Oak Line.

The District Line will shut all weekend between Upminster and Tower Hill, including stations in Barking and Dagenham, to enable track replacement and a Crossrail upgrade at Whitechapel.

The Barking to Gospel Oak Line will be suspended on Sunday owing to planned engineering works.

Transport for London admitted line closures were “frustrating” but said it worked hard to keep disruption to a minimum.
