Tube Strike
« on: September 03, 2007, 02:12:17 pm »
For those who rely on the tube to get home, you may be intereted in the following press release from London Underground:

"Metronet strike affecting Tube services from this afternoon until end of Thursday 6 September
 We continue to work to avoid the strike by Metronet staff.

 If the strike goes ahead, it will affect services from this afternoon's peak period. If possible, please complete your journey by 1700 this evening or use alternative routes, including DLR, National Rail and bus services.
 The Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines are the only lines expected to operate normally. We anticipate that they will be very crowded.
 Services may not return to normal until Friday morning, unless the strike is resolved."

The following is from First Capital Connect's site

First Capital Connect services will run as normal and all London Underground stations we serve will be open during the strike periods.

First Capital Connect services are expected to be busier than usual due to higher customer numbers. Customers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

Strike suspended late yesterday, but Transport for London (TfL) warned services would remain disrupted until rolling stock is in its correct locations. The union involved, the RMT will meet again on Friday before deciding whether to continue with a second 72-hour strike due to start next Monday.

In case anyone missed this, the second strike was called off before it began
