Which way?

This is a sight quite a few people travelling around Stratford have seen, especially on sundays. Im still not 100% which way the Central line replacement buses go towards Liverpool Street but this sign is shortly before Angel Lane (so takes you Leyton station direction).

The Central Line is off around here (between Liverpool Street and Leytonstone) because of platofrm works at Stratford. New platform is going to be connected to the Jubilee building and provide two platforms to wait for your Central London train.

The Jubilee Line has been off due to testing from Stratford depot to North Greenwich of the new signalling system due to be in daily operation in 2009. The same system is due to be operation on the Northern in 2011 and the Piccadilly 2014 (from Tubelines).

The DLR is off due to 3 car work on the route to let the extended trains run as part of the improvement project. This is going to continue untill 2010 if all goes to plan (as is typical with the DLR).

One line that isn't on here is the London Overground (North London Line) between Stratford and Hackney Wick. Im not 100% sure but it could be connected to the works for the Olympic site with the new Overground Platforms as well as the new DLR track through the area.

The Overground section between Hackney Wick and Stratford is out due to the tunnel that they are building from Stratford to the A115. Once complete they will back fill and cover..
Here's a piccy link to give you an idea how long it will be.,+UK&ie=UTF8&ll=51.541604,-0.008883&spn=0.004204,0.009978&t=h&z=17.
