A signal failure at North Greenwich caused severe delays on the Jubilee Line this morning, disrupting many people’s attempts to reach the Olympic Park at Stratford.

The disruption is beginning to clear but those travelling to the Olympic Park are still urged to consider using the DLR, District Line, or National Rail services from Liverpool Street.

All other London Underground and Overground lines are currently running smoothly, and there are no major traffic incidents reported on the roads.

If you are travelling to the opening ceremony tonight you are advised to take the District line to West Ham and walk to the Olympic Park along the Greenway, where queues will be shorter.
