Victoria Line Strike on Wednesday

bob-crowCommunist Bob has just sprung this announcement on Transport for London, I am posting this up straight away with little other detail in the hope that it gets the message out as far as possible to those affected.

Bush dwellers should remember that they can use the Overground between Clapham Junction and Stratford with many tube connections along the way. No problems are forecast on that route. I usually go to South London to work on the Victoria but the Overground gets me to Clapham Junction from Shepherds Bush in just over 10 minutes. There are lots of buses from there to all over the place.

More when I get it but in the meantime good luck on the journey tomorrow. And commiserations to those of you caught up in this morning's disastrous journey on the Central Line.

UPDATE 1215: The strike is apparently about bullying and doors! The world according to the RMT here

UPDATE 1500: The strike will apparently start tonight at about 2100 - so get home before then!

UPDATE 0520 WEDS: Transport for London are reporting that the strike is affecting services, so it looks like they have walked out. The tube has only just started running at this time in the morning so its likely to get a lot worse as the day goes on. Avoid the Victoria Line at all costs!

UPDATE 0830 WEDS: The line is totally suspended in both directions
