Tube Strike on Jubilee Line

bob-crowThanks to the fantastic Underground blog we have a heads up for you on this unofficial walk out at several Jubilee line stations starting this evening and lasting throughout thursday.

This summer's inevitable wave of strikes courtesy of the RMT would, it appear, be starting this evening for those unfortunate enough to have to use the Jubilee.

For those of you who need to either get to or from Shepherd's Bush don't forget you can now use the Overground station at Shepherd's Bush which connects with Clapham junction in the south and Willesden Junction in the North, then on to Stratford via north London.

I hope this helps, if only to give you warning. Good luck people!

Good luck on thursday!

1032 Thurs UPDATE: I didn't see any problems rported this morning and the Tube website is reporting no problems. Londoners 1 RMT 0. Have a good week-end!

  3. [...] tomorrow. So Communist Bob has scored one back against Londoners after the abject failure of his first attempt this year. Expect him to be emboldened by this one and for the next attempt to mysteriously [...]
