Answered By: 
The Mayor

When there are major rail closures, TfL examine forecast changes to passenger movements and adjust services accordingly. This could involve enhancements to existing bus services and/or the introduction of temporary dedicated rail replacement routes.  Cannon Street services, including the Greenwich line, should not be significantly affected until August 2016 and so detailed planning work has not been finalised.
