Travelling home from Canary Wharf in the midst of the Tube strike?

Transport for London suggests you make an early dash from the office with the aim of arriving at your front door by 6.30pm on Wednesday, August 5.

If the industrial action goes ahead, as is almost certain , services will be suspended for 24 hours from that time.

This means things are set to get hectic – and even more hot and sweaty than normal – on the Jubilee Line from around 4.30pm.

The DLR, London Overground, tram and TfL rail will all be running normal services with extra staff while MBNA Thames Clippers is boosting its fleet on Thursday, August 6, to help cope with extra demand during the morning and evening rush hours.

There will be 250 extra buses on London’s roads and more cycle hire points will be installed including pop-ups at Waterloo’s Concert Hall Approach and more bikes at Newgate Street to service Wharfers travelling to and from the City.

For those based in Docklands, the Emirates Air Line will run until 11pm on both Wednesday, August 5, and Thursday, August 6, and Travelcards will be accepted.

Tube services will resume on the morning of Friday, August 7.

London Underground chief operating officer Steve Griffiths said: “Our customers are advised to check the TfL website for the latest information as we seek to resolve the dispute and to keep London moving should the unions go ahead with their action.

“On Friday we provided a revised offer, which we believe addresses all of the unions’ concerns, rewards our hardworking staff and remains sustainable and affordable.

“We are now asking the unions to call off the planned strike action and put this very fair offer to their members.”
