Travellers in the capital London between 25 and 28 August should anticipate significant travel disruption due to two planned 24-hour strikes by underground (‘tube’) train drivers.
Allow plenty of time for any journeys using public transport, as services that are operating will be overcrowded.
The strikes are liable to result in increased traffic congestion as commuters opt to use private vehicles to travel to work.
Allow additional time for any road journeys in London while strikes are ongoing.
Taxis will also be subject to higher demand during the strikes; advance bookings should be made for important journeys on strike days.
