TfL has announced a plan detailing what Tube lines will be running during the RMT strike starting on Monday (April 28) at 9.30pm for 48 hours.

*UPDATED WEDNESDAY 9.15AM*

Trains will start from around 7am or as soon as possible afterwards, and will stop around 11pm “where we can”, say TfL, but the last services could depart from central London closer to 9.30pm.

David Cameron has criticised the strike, tweeting that it is ‘unjustified and unacceptable’, and Boris Johnson has called it ‘pointless’.

Mick Cash, RMT acting general secretary, responded: “Instead of attacking Tube workers who are fighting to defend jobs and safety, David Cameron should be hauling in his Tory colleague Boris Johnson to explain why he has turned his promise to Londoners not to close ticket offices on its head and is now hell bent on axing every single one of them.

“We will not allow the future of the Tube to be turned into a battleground in the war between Cameron and Johnson for the Tory party leadership.”

The strike will not affect the DLR, London Overground, Tramlink or National Rail services. Extra buses and river boat services will run.
