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.

London City Airport takes environmental management seriously. Managing the impact our operation has on the local and global environment, and local communities is a priority for our business. We work closely with our neighbours and stakeholders to maximise the positive benefits the Airport brings to the local and UK economies, while delivering wide ranging environmental programmes to ensure we can operate and grow in a sustainable way.
To ensure the London City Airport Environmental Programme is continually progressing, we have committed, through an updated (2009) legal planning agreement with the London Borough of Newham, to a range of environmental monitoring and mitigation strategies and action plans. We report our progress with an Annual Performance Report which is published at the end of July each year. The Annual Performance Report on the 2014 calendar year can be found here:
