Answered By: 
The Mayor

There is a UK-wide planning arrangement for collating, communicating and publicising planned engineering work. This is reported through the National Rail Enquiries Service, via website and telephone.

At a local level, TfL creates a poster in the form of a map for use at LOROL (London Overground Rail Operations Ltd) served stations and for TfL's Journey Planner, and other train operators are responsible for undertaking the same process for their areas.

I am satisfied in general with these arrangements, but would be happy to hear from you where this has broken down or could be improved.
