Latest on planned Tube strike
Industrial action closes scores of Tube stations
TRANSPORT bosses are warning Tube passengers to try and end their journeys by 10pm tonight (Tuesday) as the network prepares for the third 24-hour strike this year.
Members of the RMT and TSSA unions are expected to take industrial action at 9pm tonight, maintenance workers downed tools at 7pm.
Transport for London has rolled out 100 extra buses on the street and there are 10,000 extra journeys available on the River Thames.
This is the third of four planned strikes with a final one for the year penciled in for November 28 in response to the Mayor of London’s plans to axe ticket offices across the network.
Union bosses claims this will result in job losses and have a detrimental affect on passenger and workers safety.
Stations that be closed tomorrow include Swiss Cottage, Kilburn Park, Maida Vale, Shepherd’s Bush, Queensway, Sloane Square, Covent Garden, Fulham Broadway, High Street Kensington, Holland Park, Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, Lancaster Gate and Latimer Road.
