Find out what Tube lines are on strike today as workers walk out on Budget Day, March 15.
London Underground staff from the RMT and ASLEF unions are taking action in a dispute over pensions, job losses and contractual agreements.
The RMT claims London Underground Ltd has started to impose 600 station staff job losses and refused to rule out attacks on pensions or conditions of work.
This comes as a number of other industries including junior doctors working for the NHS and teachers are also walking out on Wednesday.
If you need to travel across London today, here is all the information you need…
Which Tube lines are on strike today?
Transport for London’s (TfL) status updates page reveals there is no service on all traditional Tube lines today.
The following lines are suspended due to the train strikes:
- Hammersmith & City
- London Overground
- Waterloo & City
There will be no trains at all on all of the above lines for the whole of Wednesday and you will have to make alternative travel arrangements.
Normal service will resume on Thursday, March 16, but there may be delays in the morning as the network recovers from the action.
There is a train strike on March 16 which will affect 18 companies across Britain and cause severe disruption on National Rail.
Is the Elizabeth Line running?
Yes, the Elizabeth Line is running as normal today and there is currently a good service across the whole route.
However, services will be much busier than normal and there are likely to be queuing systems in place at many stations.
No service is expected between Paddington and Abbey Wood/Stratford before 7.30am or after 10.30pm on March 15.
Closure of Tube stations may also mean some trains will be unable to stop at all stations or run to their normal destination.
What about DLR and Trams?
The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and London Trams are also running as normal on Wednesday. Again, they are likely to be busier than usual.
There will be no step-free access for the DLR at Bank and services may not be able to stop at all stations due to closures.
Buses will run as normal too and passengers should consider walking or cycling if travel is absolutely necessary on March 15.
There are no more Tube strikes planned after March 15. However, a series of National Rail strikes begins this week by the RMT union.
