Business Travel Agents Strike Update on London Underground Services
31st January 2014
Flightline business travel agents have been informed that the RMT and TSSA unions have called two 48 hour strikes affecting London Underground and Tramlink Services early next month.
The following dates are affected:
- From 21:00 on Tuesday 4 February until 20:59 on Friday 7 February – 48 hours
- From 21:00 on Tuesday 11 February until 20:59 on Thursday 14 February – 48 hour
- From 22:00 on Tuesday 4 February until 21:59 on Wednesday 5 February – 24 hours
Although London Underground will attempt to run such services as they can during the strike period, widespread travel disruption is expected. Tramlink anticipate that they may be able to run trams between Wimbledon and East Croydon. DLR,London Overground,and other rail services will operate normally but will be busier than usual. TFL plan also to enhance london bus services on key routes.
Flightline Travel Management advise travellers to prepare for delays and disruptions as the service actually run is likely to vary from day to day. Alternatively, you may wish to consider cycling or walking, if possible.
Please check the Transport for London website (www.tfl.gov.uk) before starting your journey.
