With the London Olympics 2012 round the corner, the search giant has just announced its real time service alerts for the London Underground to Google Maps helping the visitors to inform with any disruptions on the Underground that are happening at the time you need them most. In addition to the service alerts in real time, the company have included planned engineering works for the weekends in our journey planner as well.
When planning a trip for the coming weekend, the service will show you the relevant subway alerts as part of the directions results. The information is available on maps.google.co.uk for desktop and mobile, but also on Google Maps for Android. To see these alerts, click on a station in a timetable or in the public transport directions results.
