Tubes strikes to affect travel this week

Bus strike

Travel chaos for commuters amid a fresh new batch of walk-outs by TfL and National Rail staff. Find out here when and how they will affect your travel plans.

The strikes are due to a dispute about pensions, jobs and working conditions of all National Rail and TfL workers including cleaners and safety crews.

Strike action will affect travel on August, 18th, 19th, and 20th.

On Thursday 18th of August more than 40,000 members from the RMT and TSSA unions will stage a 24-hour walk out, which strikes will affect Arriva Rail London, Avanti West Coast, Crosscountry, Greater Anglia (including Stansted Express), Great Western, Hull Trains, LNER, London Overground, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains.

Other services may be disrupted so it is advised that you check before you travel and allow yourself extra time for your journey.

Friday, 19th of August will see Londoners face a double-whammy as Underground staff and bus drivers are due to strike. Talks for this one are still ongoing, so strike action may be avoided if all parts involved reach an agreement.

There will be no service, or extremely reduced service on the following routes: 9, N9, 13, 18, N18, 23, 28, N28, 33, N33, 49, 65, N65, 70, 71, 72, N72, 85, 94, 105, 110, 116, 117, 148, 203, 211, 216, 218, 220, 223, 224, 228, 235, 258, 265, 266, N266, 272, 281, 283, 290, 293, 371, 404, 406, 411, 414, 418, 419, 423, 440, 452, 465, 467, 470, 481, 613, 635, 639, 655, 662, 665, 670, 671, 681, 696, 697, C1, C3, E1, E3, H17, H22, H32, H37, H91, H98, K1, K2, K3, K4, K5, N97, S3 and X140.
