Services will cease tonight at 6pm and there will be no Tube trains at all on Thursday
Commuters in the county are facing yet more agony this week with industrial action starting today on the London Underground.
The ASLEF, RMT, Unite and TSSA unions are set to walk out later today meaning no Tube service from late afternoon on Wednesday and no service at all on Thursday.
Tube services are set to stop tonight at 6pm, with rail chiefs warning of ‘exceptionally busy’ trains between 4pm and 6pm.
Extra buses and river services will be in place tomorrow (Thursday), but road traffic is set to spike.
This may put even more strain on Kent’s roads if Operation Stack remains in place.
Disruption is expected to continue into Friday morning.
Staff on the bus network, the DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, Trams, river services, Emirates Air Line and Santander Cycles are not on strike.
