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.

London City Airport has been named Airport of the Year in its category at the 2014 Air Transport News Awards.
The only airport actually in London picked up the accolade for the best airport with under 10 million passengers per year at a ceremony in Istanbul.
Declan Collier, CEO of London City Airport said: “London City Airport has the best transport links in the UK, is the most punctual airport in the UK and, for the business traveller, has the best location in the UK. We offer a unique time-based brand proposition – a 20 minute check-in and a 15 minute arrival – and we’re investing heavily in new technology to both measure and maintain that proposition. Our team members, wherever they work and whatever their job, know that they are part of delivering a better journey to the passenger and are proud to do so – this award recognises their commitment and their achievements.”
Other winners included Dubai International as overall winner and Doha International in the 10-30 million passengers category.
Dr Kostas Iatrou, Managing Director of Air Transport News said: “Air Transport News honours for the third consecutive year the leader companies in the major categories of the air transport industry elected based on a democratic procedure. I want to congratulate all the winners for their achievement.”
London City Airport is located just three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City of London and 10 miles from Westminster, all of which are easily accessed via the Docklands Light Railway and London Underground. Unlike larger airports where passengers are required to arrive two hours before a flight, at London City you can check in, clear security and settle in the departure lounge within just 20 minutes of arriving at the front door. On arrival it takes just 15 minutes to disembark, pass through Customs and reach the exit. It offers flights to more than 40 destinations across Europe and New York.
