Tube services will be impacted as follows:

Saturday 6 February: some Tube stations may close earlier than usual. Please allow more time and complete your Tube journey by early evening

Sunday 7 February: some Tube stations may not open, and others may open later and close earlier than usual. Tube services may start later and finish earlier than usual

TfL warns that the impact is difficult to predict in advance. The website says: “We will open whichever stations we can, based on the staff who sign on to their shifts.”

Don’t drive, cycle

During the strike extra buses will be added, though TfL urge people not to take to their cars, so that public transport can move more freely.

“If you own a bike, we’d encourage you to cycle to work,” TfL say.

Cycle docking stations at Waterloo, Newgate Street (St. Paul’s), Belgrove Street (Kings Cross) and Bride Street (City) will have more cycles available than usual for the morning and evening peak.

For real-time information, check your nearest docking station or follow @SantanderCycles on Twitter. You can also find out more about Santander Cycles

The DLR and the Overground will be much busier than normal.
