London transport services will be disrupted again if potential strike action by certain Tube trade union members goes ahead between Tuesday 25 and Friday 28 August.
Notice of any strikes and the potential impact to travel in London will be available on the Transport for London (TfL) website: https://tfl.gov.uk/. Please take the time now to plan alternative routes, and check the TfL website before you travel. More guidance is below.
Planned strike action: two 24-hour Tube strikes on Tuesday 25 and Thursday 27 August
If the strikes go ahead, tube services will be affected from:
- Around 6.30pm on Tuesday 25 August until 6.30pm on Wednesday 26 August, and repeated again from 6.30pm on Thursday 27 August until the same time on Friday 28 August.
- Services are expected to return to normal on Saturday 29 August.
- Staff on the bus network, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, tram, Emirates Air Line and River services will not be on strike.
Information for students sitting exams
Please be aware that you must get to your examinations on time. All examinations will take place as normal during the planned strike period. If you are late for an exam or miss it because of travel disruption due to these strikes, you will not be able to claim this as an extenuating circumstance because the strikes were known about in advance.
Please take the time now to plan alternative ways to get to your exams and assessments, allow for longer journey times and check the TfL website before you travel: https://tfl.gov.uk/
Planned strikes do not always go ahead, sometimes being called off at the last minute, so please do check the TfL website before you travel for live updates.
