Answer for South-East London: Connectivity to the West End

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please see my response to MQ1507 / 2013 which explains the work TfL is doing with Network Rail and others to ensure clear communication with customers during the works at London Bridge - this will include Jubilee line closures. Nonetheless, I do not anticipate any significant impact on connectivity from southeast London to the West End for either National Rail or Jubilee line users during the works you mention.

For Jubilee line users, closures will be relatively infrequent and, in any case, they will mostly not affect the service east of Waterloo, meaning customers will have a number of options to connect to other lines - notably the Northern and Bakerloo - to reach the West End.

For National Rail passengers, all stations in southeast London will continue to have direct services to Charing Cross or Victoria (or both) at almost all times throughout the works, except during a small number of weekend closures which will of course be well publicised.
