    Temporary notice 19th April, 2014.

    The RMT Union has just announced that they are to hold another two of their strikes from 2100 hours on Monday 28th April for 48 hours and from 2100 hours on Monday 5th May for 72 hours. As always, these are designed to cause maximum disruption by being during the working week and will affect both Londoners and visitors alike. There will be a huge strain on other forms of public transport so travellers are advised to plan well ahead if they are visiting during these periods.

    I shall attempt to keep this information as current as possible should there be any changes.

    I have just heard on the BBC News in London that Tube (Underground / Metro) workers are going on strike for 24 hours on Boxing Day (26th December, 2012). Members of the ASLEF Union have today voted in favour of this action which will seriously disrupt transportation in London on this public holiday. They have also voted for industrial action on the 18th January, 2013 and 25th January, 2013. Here is a link.

    I shall update this if there is any change in the situation.
