Post updated with new version of table - showing impacts to TfL services between Fri 1st Sept-Sun 3rd Sept

Hi, thank you for the clear and detailed update!

One q: will some central stations shared between TfL and NR be affected by the strike with late opening / early closure such as:

  • Whitechapel Elizabeth line
  • Farringdon Elizabeth line
    Thank you!

Thanks for the question!
I’ve checked on this with our Travel Demand Management team - as this is national rail strike action, other than the areas affected (as mentioned in update above) all our stations and services will run as normal

good news, thanks for clarifying!
