Better Tube services running and more of the network served than during the last strike

Better Tube services running and more of the network served than during the last strike

� Unions once again fail to bring London to a halt

� Forty per cent of Tube services now operating

� In central London, most stations open and most services running

More and more Tube services are now running as the “paralysis” predicted by the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA unions has once again failed to materialise. Trains are now running on ten of the eleven lines, with the Central line operating between White City and Leytonstone, and the Waterloo & City line now running. Some 40 per cent of services are operating across the network and work is underway to operate more services wherever possible.

All of London’s key stations are operating, including Liverpool Street, London Bridge, Victoria, Euston, Stratford, Waterloo, Holborn, Heathrow, Kings Cross, Finsbury Park, Paddington, Earl’s Court, and Whitechapel.

Good services are operating on the bus network, Docklands Light Railway (DLR), and London Overground.

Extra bus services have been provided, along with extra capacity for an additional 10,000 journeys on river services and marshalled taxi ranks.

Volunteers are on hand at bus, Tube, and rail stations to help passengers and distribute walking maps and other useful information.

Howard Collins, Chief Operating Officer of London Underground, said: “We are running more services and serving more of the network than during the last strike. The unions have once again failed to bring London to a halt. Although Londoners will doubtless face some disruption, we have 40 per cent of Tube trains running and, together with additional bus and river services, we are keeping London moving.

“It is incredible that the two union leaderships have pursued this action when they have been given cast-iron assurances that the staffing changes we are making come with no compulsory redundancies or loss of earnings, that every station that currently has a ticket office will retain one, and that every station will remain staffed at all times. They should now see sense, and call off this pointless strike.”
