Tube strike on Wednesday evening / all day Thursday this week

London Underground logoIt appears that the 24 hour strike by London Underground workers planned to start at 1830 on Wednesday evening is still going ahead. This is likely to cause severe disruption to travel to and from College on Thursday.

All scheduled classes will go ahead as usual, so you must try your best to attend. You will still be marked absent if you do not attend any lesson you have on Thursday which will, of course, affect your attendance figures.

It is likely that your journey to College will be difficult, so leave home early and give yourself plenty of extra time to get here. Rail and bus services are likely to be exceptionally busy. If you usually travel in by tube, please check the latest status before and during your travel. London Overground and DLR services are not affected by the strike but will be exceptionally busy.

Additionally, there is also strike action planned on First Great Western services (main line trains to and from Paddington station) from Thursday until Saturday. This is likely to specifically affect the trains that run from Greenford into Paddington but all FGW services may be subject to delays or cancellation. See the First Great Western website for further information.
