Planned strikes to affect London Underground and Overground services in Harrow

London Underground and Overground commuters in Harrow are bracing for disruptions as planned strike action is set to impact services between Sunday 23 and Saturday 29 July.

The strike will cause severe disruption, with no service on Wednesday 26 and Friday 28 July, so commuters are advised to complete their journeys by 19:00 on 23 July.

However, it’s important to note that bus, DLR, London Overground (including Night Overground), Elizabeth line, tram, and IFS Cloud Cable Car services will not be affected by the strike. Some DLR, London Overground, and Elizabeth line stations may experience closures if they serve London Underground lines.


Moreover, national rail strikes are also scheduled on Thursday 20, Saturday 22, and Saturday 29 July, potentially affecting some District Line, London Overground, Elizabeth Line, and tram services. To avoid any inconvenience, passengers are urged to plan ahead, check for updates before travelling, and allocate extra time for their journeys.

During the strike period, specific London Underground lines will experience service disruptions. The Bakerloo line will not operate between Queen’s Park and Harrow & Wealdstone. Alternative routes via the Jubilee, Metropolitan, Central, or Piccadilly lines, as well as London Northwestern Railway services or local bus routes, should be used for travel to/from central London.

For intermediate stations, bus routes 18, N18, 36, 112, 266, 487, 718, and 719 will be available. Temporary bus routes 718 and 719 will run every 10 and 15 minutes respectively, covering the affected line closure.

Additionally, the Circle line will have no service between Edgware Road and Tower Hill (via Victoria), while the District line will experience no service between Embankment and Hammersmith and between Earl’s Court and Edgware Road/Kensington (Olympia). Furthermore, on Sunday 23 July, there will be no District line service between Turnham Green and Richmond, with a rail replacement bus service available.

For London Overground, there will be no service between Hackney Downs and Chingford, Watford Junction and Queen’s Park, Richmond and Gospel Oak (via West Hampstead), and Willesden Junction and Shepherd’s Bush. In addition, the line between Barking and Barking Riverside will also have no service, but alternative local bus routes are provided.

Commuters relying on the Watford Junction to Euston London Overground service will face disruptions from Monday 24 to Sunday 30 July. However, London Northwestern Railway services and temporary bus routes 718 and 720, running every 20 and 10 minutes respectively, will help commuters travel between Watford Junction and Harrow-on-the-Hill (via Harrow & Wealdstone).
