Paralympics Lowdown: Sunday 9 September

Your final London 2012 heads-up on what’s happening where, transport and weather.

Top things to see and do

Check out our weekend post for more ideas.

Transport hotspots

Stations along the Marathon route, particularly near The Mall, Embankment, Bank, The City and Tower Hill, are expected to be very busy leading up to and after the races.

The Mayor’s Thames Festival means that stations north and south of the river between Westminster and Tower Bridge will be busier than usual. The usual warnings about possible busy periods on the Central and Jubilee lines apply and Stratford will be bonkers busy this evening due to the Closing Ceremony.

Check before you travel and consult the daily heat map.

Sport highlights

  • 8am  Athletics – the Marathon (watch out for ParalympicsGB stars David Weir and Shelly Wood)
  • 8.30am 7-a Side Football
  • 12pm Wheelchair Rugby
  • 8.30pm Paralympic Closing Ceremony

These are start times only. See the London2012 site for full schedule.

Weather

Temperatures could reach 27 degrees by 3pm tomorrow so protect yourself from the sun and you might want to carry some water if travelling on the tube. It should be a warm and dry evening in Stratford, hoorah!  Keep an eye on BBC Weather for the latest.
