Harrow residents and commuters are set to face travel disruptions as a two-day strike on the Elizabeth line is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 24, and Thursday, May 25.
During the strike on Wednesday, May 24, there will be a complete suspension of Elizabeth line services between Paddington and Abbey Wood. This means that commuters travelling on this route will need to seek alternative transportation options. However, a reduced service of eight trains per hour will be available between Liverpool Street National Rail platforms and Shenfield, as well as between Paddington National Rail platforms and Reading/Heathrow.
The Metropolitan line will be affected on Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, with no service available between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Amersham/Chesham/Watford. Rail replacement bus services will be provided as an alternative mode of transportation during this time.
The disruptions will continue on Thursday, May 25, with services between Paddington and Abbey Wood, as well as to and from Whitechapel, starting later than usual. A full service is not expected to resume before 08:30am, causing potential delays and inconvenience for morning commuters.
To minimize the impact of the strike, commuters are advised to check for updates and plan their journeys in advance. Additional travel time should be allowed to accommodate any delays or disruptions that may occur during this period.
It is recommended that commuters stay informed about any further updates or changes to the transportation services by visiting the official TfL website.
