UK: National rail strike to affect London Underground
Transport for London (TfL) has announced that its tube services will join the national rail strike, but only on Tuesday, 21 June. The strikes will be “London-wide”, according to the transport network, which will leave all lines “severely disrupted or not running” and will last all day and through to mid-morning on 22 June.
While services will resume as normal at 8am on 22 June, TfL says it will be best to avoid the Underground and Overground until mid-morning, as there are likely to be major delays following the resumption.
The rail strikes are likely to have an adverse effect on the Tube, particularly the Overground and the city’s new Elizabeth Line, which will see “reduced services” again on 23 and 25 June.
