Three-quarters of Tube stations sill running
DESPITE thousands of East Londoners struggling to work because of the strike called by the RMT and TSSA unions around three quarters of Tube stations are currently open, Transport for London has reported.
Trains are operating on eight of London Underground’s eleven lines and all of the key stations are operating, including Euston, Waterloo, Heathrow, Kings Cross and Paddington.
In east London there is no central Line service but the Jubilee line is operating between Wembley Park and Stratford, with some stations currently closed while the District line is operating between Wimbledon and Ealing Broadway in the west and Barking.
And there are good services on the bus network, Docklands Light Railway and London Overground.
