Seven London Mainline Stations To Shut During Tube Strike

Seven train stations in London will be completely or partially shut next week due to strike action.

Great Northern, Thameslink and Southern network services will all be impacted by Tube strikes that are expected to last from Sunday (January 7) until the next Friday (January 12).

There will be little or no service on London Underground over these dates as members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) stage a series of walkouts in protest at a 5% pay offer.

Although the strikes should not affect other train routes, such as London Overground services and the Elizabeth line, some mainline stations will be impacted.

Here is a full breakdown of which stations will be disrupted during the planned strike.

Great Northern There will be no Great Northern services at five stations – Drayton Park, Highbury and Islington, Essex Road, Old Street and Moorgate – on January 8 and January 10.

Trains which normally run to and from Moorgate will terminate and start at Finsbury Park.

On January 9 and January 11, services at all five stations will start later than normal, with no trains before 7.30am.

Thameslink Farringdon station will only be open between 6.30am and 10.30pm on January 8 and January 10.

On January 9 and January 11, Thameslink trains will not be able to serve Farringdon until 7.30am.

Southern There will be no Southern services at Wembley Central on January 8 and January 10.

On January 9 and January 11, Southern trains will not be able to serve the station until 7.30am.

Reaction to strike action Glynn Barton, TfL’s chief operating officer, said: “We are disappointed that RMT is planning strike action in response to our offer of a 5% pay increase.

“We have been clear throughout our productive discussions with our trade unions that this offer is the most we can afford while ensuring that we can operate safely, reliably and sustainably.

“We encourage the RMT to engage with us to avoid disruption for Londoners. We would like to advise anyone travelling during the strike days to check before they travel.”

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said Tube workers were not going to accept poor offers and the “continual undermining of conditions”.

He added: “The refusal of TfL to restore staff travel facilities and create a two-tier workforce is also unacceptable.

“Our members have made it clear that they are prepared to take action and we urge TfL to enter into meaningful conciliatory talks to avert disruption in the capital.”
