Amid a 48-hour walkout by RMT staff

Tansport chiefs have issued an emergency travel guidance as more than 350,000 passengers will be affected in the DLR strike starting 4am tomorrow, until 03.59am on Friday, 30 March.

The 48-hour walkout by RMT staff is over a range of issues including an alleged “comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations”.

Mark Davis, TfL’s interim general manager of the DLR, said if the strike goes ahead “it is unlikely that any DLR services will run.

“Our bus, Tube and rail services will be operating as normal and we will be running extra buses on key routes to help keep London moving. We urge the RMT and (operators) KeolisAmey Docklands (KAD) to continue with discussions in order to settle this dispute,” he added.

Because of the strike, certain nearby stations will stay busier than usual like Canning Town, Bank, Stratford, Canary Wharf, Canada Water and London Bridge.

Transport for London added that an extra 49 buses will be operating along key DLR routes.
