Breaking News: Strike hits London Underground Today's News


Print   Send to a friend

A Tube drivers’ strike is under way in London, forcing services on the District Line to be reduced today, April 13.

A statement on the Transport for London (TfL) website says: “There will be delays to District Line journeys throughout the day – please allow more time to complete your journeys or change to a different line if possible.”

According to the statement, services to the District Line are expected to resume normal operations tomorrow morning. All other Tube lines will operate normally today. 

The impact in central London is expected to be minimal due to normal operations on the Circle Line, with regular services between Gloucester Road and Tower Hill. There will be greater times between trains heading to all western branches of the District Line, via Earl’s Court and east of Tower Hill.

Services to Kensington Olympia are cancelled for the day. “London Overground and Southern services will be calling at the station as usual. TfL Travel Ambassadors will be at key locations to provide travel information and advice,” the statement concludes.
