Posted on: Fri 25 Oct 2013

Supporters heading to Stamford Bridge for Sunday's game with Manchester City may find the following information useful.

On National Rail, there is a serious disruption to services via Wimbledon on South West Trains. Engineering work is taking place between Queenstown Road and Strawberry Hill/Byfleet and New Haw, and some lines are closed.

Until 14:30, buses replace trains between Clapham Junction and Surbiton/Chessington South/Woking/Twickenham via Kingston/Hampton Court/Effingham Junction.

After 14:30, buses replace trains between Clapham Junction and Surbiton/Chessington South/Twickenham via Kingston.

Journey times will be extended by at least 30 minutes. We recommend that you allow plenty of extra time to get to Stamford Bridge if you travel via Wimbledon.

Meanwhile, engineering work is also taking place on Southern services between London Victoria and Clapham Junction with some lines closed. A reduced service will run between the two stations, with the trains that do run being retimed through Clapham Junction.

We strongly recommend you use the National Rail journey planner to check your route prior to departure.

Those fans using the London Underground should be aware that there is no service on the Central Line between Bethnal Green, Loughton and Woodford (via Hainault). Replacement bus services will be in operation.

On the District line, there is no service between Upminster and Dagenham East, while the London Overground is shut between Highbury & Islington and Stratford and between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction. Again, replacement buses will be in operation.

The Waterloo and City line remains shut on Sundays.

There is a good service predicted on all other lines, although we advise you to check your route prior to departure through Transport for London.

Supporters travelling to the game by car, please be advised that there are no planned roadworks in and around the area of the stadium. However, please check your route prior to departure through either the AA or RAC websites.

If you are travelling to the match by car, please remember Chelsea's Liftshare Scheme, which allows those supporters with room in their vehicle to give a fellow Blue a lift to the game.
