Tube strike disruption spills over into second day leaving commuters stranded

The disruption of the metro strike extended into the second day as passengers were stranded due to severe delays in the subway system.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and Unite are involved in a long-running dispute over jobs and pensions and staged a mass strike on Thursday.

Nine out of 11 London Underground lines were closed Thursday morning, according to the website Transport for London (TfL).

Tube workers were due to return to work on Friday, but the detrimental effect of the strike means eight lines are still experiencing delays on the second day.

Affected fonts are:

  • Bakerloo: Severe delays
  • Middle: severe delays
  • Circuit: slight delays
  • Region: Minor delays
  • Hammersmith and the City: Minor delays
  • Jubilee: severe delays
  • Metropolitan: Severe delays
  • Piccadilly: Severe delays

The Overground segment was suspended between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction, and there were severe delays elsewhere on the network Friday morning.

DLR, Elizabeth, Northern, Victoria, Waterloo and City lines were all operating as planned, according to Citymapper.

A number of Tube stations, including huge commuter hubs such as Waterloo and Victoria, were closed Friday morning.

It meant that passengers were either unable to get to work, or had to find alternative transportation.
