Big travel issues affect Sunday’s game

Hammers fans will be having some problems getting to the London Stadium for Sunday’s game against Aston Villa.

Sundays are always tricky from a travel point of view but this week seems to be presenting numerous problems all over the area.

Greater Anglia services will yet again be suspended, this time between London Liverpool Street and Witham, due to engineering work.

Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton and Colchester Town mainline services will turn around at Witham all weekend, from where buses will replace trains between Witham and Newbury Park, where fans can pick up the London Underground Central line to Stratford.

Buses will also replace trains between Southend Victoria-Newbury Park and between Southminster-Wickford. Braintree branch line services will terminate/start from Witham.

c2c services are also affected this weekend.

Due to engineering works between Liverpool Street and Barking, services will be diverted to Fenchurch Street and will call additionally at West Ham but will not call at Stratford. Supporters should alight at West Ham and catch the Jubilee line to Stratford.

Overhead line renewal between Barking and Grays means services between those stations will not run. Rail replacement buses will run between Upminster and Grays via Rainham and Purfleet, while passengers can also use tickets on TfL bus routes EL2 or 287.

On the Elizabeth line, there will be no service between Stratford and Shenfield. Replacement buses will operate between Stratford-Newbury Park and Romford-Shenfield.

On the London Overground, there will be no service between Romford-Upminster. Fans should use local London Buses.

Thankfully, southeastern railway services will run as scheduled, with no planned engineering works.
