Latest Weekend Travel Update

October 1, 2023
    Tube and national rail strikes

    Wednesday 4 and Friday 6 October

    • There will be significant disruption across the Tube network due to planned strike action by station staff.

    If the strikes go ahead, most Tube services will be severely impacted or will not run on either day, with disruption expected into the mornings of Thursday 5 and Saturday 7 October as the network recovers following the strike action. The Night Tube will not operate on Friday 6 October.

    Elizabeth line, London Overground, DLR and tram services are expected to run as normal but may be subject to last minute changes, including non-stopping at stations shared with London Underground, and will be busier than usual.

    London buses are also expected to operate normally during this planned strike action but customers should leave more time for their journeys as it is expected that many routes will be extremely busy. Night Overground services will run but will not stop at Whitechapel or Canada Water stations.

    Piccadilly line

    No service between Acton Town and Heathrow, including Saturday Night Tube

    • Use alternative Tube and rail services, or local or rail replacement bus routes. Customers travelling between central London and Heathrow should use Elizabeth line services to/from Paddington.
