Travel carnage forecast as train and Tube to be hit by strikes over Bank Holiday

One hundred extra buses will be in operation during 48-hour strike

Major rail strikes planned to hit on Bank Holiday Monday next week are also expected to hit the London Underground, Transport for London has warned.

Network Rail staff are due to begin the 48-hour walkout at 5pm on Monday 25 May in a row over pay.

Unions have said the worst disruption will be seen on Tuesday.

The Tube will be impacted as the Underground depends on some of the same signals and power supplies.

TfL warned some DLR and Tube stations will become very busy, particularly those in south London. An additional 100 buses will be brought into action to try to deal with the increased pressure on services.

If the industrial action goes ahead, TfL has warned the following services will be affected on Monday, Tuesday and into Wednesday morning:

·        Bakerloo line: trains will not run north of Queen’s Park;

·        District line: there will be no service between Wimbledon and Putney Bridge after 17:00 on Monday and all day Tuesday. There will be no service between Turnham Green and Richmond all day on Monday and Tuesday;

·        Waterloo & City line: no service;

·        London Overground: no services will run, except between Dalston Junction and New Cross/New Cross Gate, which will operate from 08:00 and 13:00 on Monday and 08:00 and 17:00 on Tuesday.
