MARCH LONDON TUBE AND TRAIN STRIKES: When are the strikes and what services will not be running?



RMT and ASLEF union members are due to begin strike action on Wednesday impacting Tube and rail services in the capital with travellers urged to check before they travel.


On Wednesday 15 March, London Underground RMT and ASLEF union members are planning to strike on the Tube network. There will be very little or no service expected on the Tube if this action goes ahead.

The Elizabeth line will operate with an amended timetable. Elizabeth line and London Overground services will be much busier than normal and queuing systems may be in place.


The London Overground, DLR and London Trams are expected to run as normal, but the closure of Tube stations may mean some services will be unable to stop at all stations or run to their normal destination. Buses will run as normal but may also be busier than usual.


On the morning of Thursday 16 March, Tube and Elizabeth line services are expected to start much later than normal due to the previous day's strike and could be disrupted throughout the morning. Customers are advised to check before they travel.

On Thursday 16 March and Saturday 18 March, RMT union members from train operators are planning to strike on the national rail network. An amended timetable will operate on the Elizabeth line with the rest of TfL services are expected to run as normal. Some DLR, Elizabeth line and London Overground, services may not be able to stop at all stations or run to their normal destination. TfL services are expected to be busier than normal.


Glynn Barton, TfL's Chief Operating Officer, said: "I apologise to our customers for any disruption caused by Wednesday's industrial action. I urge the trade unions to call off this action and continue to engage with us to avoid disruption to our customers.


"Customers should check before they travel and we are advising them to expect very limited or no service on the Tube on Wednesday. The majority of TfL services will be running as normal but may be subject to last minute changes, including non-stopping at some stations shared with London Underground. Disruption should be expected on the Tube network into the morning on Thursday."
