Passengers looking to travel on the Bakerloo line should expect a lot of disruption today as drivers go on strike at 12 noon.
Members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers will walk out from 11.59 am today for a period of 24 hours amid a dispute over timetable changes.
They will then stop working for another 24 hours, starting at the same time on Sunday and lasting until Monday noon. A spokesperson for the union said ‘unworkable’ timetable changes had placed operators ‘under intolerable levels of personal stress’.
The strike was planned after London Underground bosses ‘slammed the door on serious talks aimed at reaching a solution’, they added.
To add to the chaos the Circle, District, Hammersmith and City and Metropolitan lines will also be closed in central London this weekend for testing of the new signalling system. The Northern line will also be closed between Moorgate and Kennington due to work on the Bank station upgrade.
Time to call a Kabbee now that Uber has lost its license?
