A 24 hour strike by RMT and TSSA union members is set to affect Tube services from early evening on Monday 6 September and throughout Tuesday 7 September.
Transport for London are anticipating disruption to most journeys although London Overground will be running as normal apart from where there is an interchange with London Underground.
River services will be running as normal. Larger boats will be used where possible to boost capacity and an additional 500 capacity shuttle service is also being provided between Tower, Westminster and London Eye Piers. This will operate 06.30 - 10.00 and 16.00 - 20.00 on Tuesday 7 September
The Congestion Charge will remain in operation throughout the strike
Taxis - Between 06:30 and 10:30 on Tuesday 7 September 2010 taxi drivers will be operating a marshalled taxi service for central London destinations at five major London rail stations - Waterloo, Liverpool St, King's Cross, Charing Cross, and Marylebone. In addition, the fixed-fare taxi sharing schemes at Euston Station and Paddington Station are expected to operate as normal
The 5,000 Barclays Cycle Hire bikes will be available to members of the scheme, although demand is likely to be high, and cycles harder to access during peak times
