    Waterloo – Until 17:00 on Sunday 9 December, Baylis Road is closed southbound at the junction of Waterloo Road. This is due to electrical connection works.

    Hyde Park – Until 22:00 on Sunday 6 January 2019, large crowds are expected at Hyde Park Corner, Marble Arch and Park Lane areas. This is due to the annual Winter Wonderland event that is taking place at Hyde Park from 10:00 until 22:00 each day, except for Christmas Day. South Carriage Drive will be closed whenever crowds get too large.

    Old Street – From Monday 3 December until early 2019, one lane will be suspended on the south east section of Old Street roundabout for utility investigations. This is to prepare for the Old Street roundabout scheme. We are planning advance highway works for the scheme from February 2019 and main works from April 2019.

    Wembley Stadium – From 17:00 until 23:59 on Wednesday 5 December, large crowds are expected in the Wembley area. This is due to a football match between Tottenham and Southampton, kicking off at 20:00. Traffic levels are expected to increase in the area before and after the game. Roads likely to be affected are the A406, A1, A40, Harrow Road, Wembley High Road and roads around the stadium.
