Tube turmoil as Central Line strike goes ahead


Commuters are facing massive travel chaos today as a 24-hour strike is taking place on the Central and Waterloo & City lines today.

The RMT union which called the Central line strike has said its members are standing “absolutely rock solid” behind the walkout.

Agitated commuters have been tweeting about the travel fiasco since morning:

TfL is also advising that some stations will be particularly busy today, especially during the morning and evening peaks, and they may need to close temporarily to stop overcrowding. These stations are: Stratford, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Bank, Liverpool Street, Woodford, Mile End, Leytonstone, White City, Ealing Broadway, Oxford Circus and Notting Hill Gate.

Last evening, Piccadilly line walk-out was called off otherwise it would have added to the travel nightmare.
