Transport for London (TfL) has announced up to 40 London Underground stations will be partially shut across the capital to support key workers as they make essential journeys in response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak.
Of the seven Tube stations in Haringey, two – Bounds Green and Manor House – are currently closed.
On Friday and Saturday nights there will be no all-night ‘Night Tube’ service or the all-night ‘Night Overground’ service that currently runs on the East London line. Available staff will be redeployed to ensure the resilience of the regular Tube and Overground services. Late services on the Tube and Overground will continue to run, with trains running late into the night on all days for essential travel only.
