TfL say if the planned industrial action goes ahead, there will be no Tube service from late afternoon on Wednesday July 8 and no Tube service at all on Thursday July 9.

Members of the RMT, Unite and TSSA unions are striking for 24 hours from 6pm on Wednesday as part of a dispute about pay and workers’ conditions when the new night tube is be introduced.

ASLEF union Tube drivers are also planning 24-hour strike action from 9.30pm on Wednesday.

If strike action goes ahead there will be no Tube services from late afternoon on Wednesday and no service on Thursday. There may be some disruption on Friday morning.

Staff on the DLR, London Overground, TfL rail, trams and buses will not be striking, but these services will be much busier than usual. Customers are strongly advised to travel outside of the morning and evening peaks if possible on Thursday.

The Tube will start winding down from around 6pm on Wednesday, so try to complete your journey before this time. Tube services are expected to be exceptionally busy between 4pm and 6pm as people try to do this.

Extra bus and river services will be provided, but expect all public transport and roads to be much busier than usual, especially during peak hours

There will also be extra Santander Cycles hubs in place at key central London locations to make cycling an easy option

TfL will be delaying or curtailing road works on major London roads wherever possible. TfL is encouraging people to keep car journeys to a minimum to allow public transport to move freely. The transport provider is suggesting people walk or cycle wherever possible.

There will be no First Great Western services between Paddington and Greenford for 48 hours from 6pm on Wednesday 8 July as a result of separate strike action.
