Harrow residents face disruptions as tube and national rail strikes take place

Harrow residents are advised to plan their journeys ahead of time as a Tube strike is scheduled to take place tomorrow (Wednesday 15 March), according to the latest information from TfL.

The strike will cause little to no service on the Tube network, which may lead to the closure of Tube stations and the unavailability of some services to stop at all stations or run to their normal destination. Elizabeth line services will also be affected, with no service expected between Paddington and Abbey Wood/Stratford before 07:30 or after 22:30.

Furthermore, services on the London Overground, DLR, and trams are expected to run as normal, although they may be much busier than usual, and queuing systems may be put in place. Buses will run as usual, but they may be much busier, particularly from mainline stations.

Harrow residents are encouraged to consider walking or cycling part of their journey as much of Zone 1 is walkable, and there are Santander Cycle hire points and electric scooter rental trials in some London boroughs. However, if travelling by train, it is important to check before you travel, particularly on Thursday 16 March, when Tube services will be recovering from the strike and there will also be a national rail strike.

The national rail strike will cause reduced services across many parts of the national rail network, and there will be no Elizabeth line service between Shenfield and Brentwood before 07:00 and after 23:00, and between Maidenhead and Reading before 07:00 and after 19:00. No westbound service from Paddington until approximately 06:00. Other TfL services will run as normal, but Harrow residents are advised to check the National Rail website for further details on the strike.

More strike action is to set take place at the end of the month on both Thursday 30 March and Saturday 1 April.
