Check travel arrangements ahead of Sunday game


Sunday games are often a pain in the neck for travelling to the London Stadium and that appears to be the case for some tomorrow.

The good news is that TfL Jubilee and Central line services are scheduled to operate to Stratford with a good service on Sunday. The Docklands Light Railway is also anticipated to run as normal, with a good service.

The Elizabeth Line is due to be partially closed throughout Sunday, with no service being provided between Paddington and Shenfield or Abbey Wood. Replacement buses will be in operation between Stratford and Romford, and also between Shenfield and Newbury Park.

There are also partial closures on the London Overground. Throughout Sunday there will be no service between Upminster and Romford, and there will also be no service available between Stratford and either Shepherds Bush or Richmond until 12pm .

Partial closures are also planned on the Metropolitan, Piccadilly and Waterloo & City lines, and supporters who make use of these services are advised to check their journey before departure.

On c2c services, there are planned engineering works between Upminster and Barking on the Ockendon line will be affected by engineering works with a shuttle service will run between Upminster and Grays. Passengers  with a valid ticket are informed however they can use district line services between Barking and Upminster.

Southeastern Railway have noted they will begin utilising an Autumn timetable from Sunday 8 October, which means some journeys will leave a few minutes earlier.

Finally, on the Greater Anglia Railway, there are no trains between London Liverpool Street to Shenfield on Sunday due to the same track maintenance work that is affecting the Elizabeth Line.

The route between London Liverpool Street and Chelmsford will also be closed all day Sunday, while the route between Stratford and Tottenham Hale will be unavailable until 11.30am
