Commuters could face disruption as strike begins

Commuters travelling into London could face journey disruption when a 48-hour strike by underground staff starts at 9.30pm tonight.

Transport for London (TfL) plans to run a limited service during the strike with services not returning to normal until Friday.

Tube services will also only operate from 7am-11pm.

The underground lines operating from Paddington are not scheduled to be effected but TfL warned there could be last-minute closures and travellers should check for updates before setting off.

TfL ambassadors and volunteers will be on hand on ground to provide customers with travel information and advice.

Services on the London Overground, DRL, trams and National Rail will be operating as normal.

A second 48-hour strike is also planned from 9.30pm on Tuesday, February 11.

Industrial action is being taken by the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) and the Transport Salaried Staff’s Association (TSSA) after talks collapsed over plans to cut almost 1,000 jobs and close ticket offices across London.
