Victoria, Central, Northern, Jubilee and Piccadilly lines will all be down


BRITAIN-TRANSPORT-STRIKE-TUBE

Commuter chaos is expected in central London tomorrow as a tube strike is announced for five lines from 4.30 on Friday morning.

Union bosses said the strike is going ahead tomorrow with hundreds of thousands of Londoners facing delays as five lines will be closed.

The Victoria, Central, Northern, Jubilee and Piccadilly line are all going to be affected as RMT drivers are urged not to clock in for work tomorrow.

TfL said the strike would result in “little or no service in places”, with the Waterloo and City line – which uses Central line drivers – also likely to be hit.

“London’s high-frequency bus services will continue to run throughout the planned strike action although are expected to be busier than normal, as will London Overground, DLR, TfL Rail and London Trams,” TfL said in a statement this morning.

Night tube

The strike is called after an ongoing dispute over night tube arrangements remains unsolved.

The night tube was suspended since the start of the pandemic, but was due to resume tomorrow evening and on Saturday for the first time.

The RMT argues that workloads being forced on Tube drivers would “wreck their work-life balance by bulldozing through additional night and weekend working”.

But TfL said that the changes have been agreed by other unions and would bean that drivers have to work four night shifts per year.
