London Underground trade unions are planning a 24-hour strike on the Tube from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August. If the strike goes ahead, Tube services will stop running from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August until Friday 7 August. There will be no Tubes on Thursday 6 August. We are expecting normal service to resume on Friday. London Underground, Overground and TfL rail services are also set to run as per usual but are likely to be busier than normal. All passengers are advised to check their journey before they travel and allow additional time to get to their destination.
