Potential National Rail disruption: an update for UCL staff

21 May 2015

Network Rail unions have called 48 hours of country-wide industrial action on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 May.

Quad If the strike goes ahead, it will affect services on Monday, Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. For more information visit nationalrail.co.uk/industrialaction

No Transport for London or London Underground staff will be on strike and so the vast majority of services will run as normal. However, as some of these rely on Network Rail signals and power supply, if the industrial action goes ahead, the following TfL services will also be affected on Monday, Tuesday and into Wednesday morning:

Bakerloo line: trains will not run north of Queen's Park

District line: there will be no service between Wimbledon and Putney Bridge after 17:00 on Monday and all day Tuesday. There will be no service between Turnham Green and Richmond all day on Monday and Tuesday

Waterloo & City line: no service

London Overground: no services will run, except between Dalston Junction and New Cross/New Cross Gate which will operate from 08:00 and 13:00 on Monday and 08:00 and 17:00 on Tuesday

Some London Underground and DLR stations, particularly those in south London, as well as the entire tram network, are expected to be much busier than usual and managed queuing systems may be in place. You may wish to stagger your journey even if you do not normally use National Rail services. TFL will operate around 100 additional bus services, mainly in south London. National Rail tickets will be accepted on Tube and bus services on reasonable alternative routes.
