The Elizabeth Line is partially closed due to strike action
There’s no service running on the central section between Abbey Wood and Paddington, with TfL also warning of short-notice cancellations and changes.
The walkout comes following an ongoing row over pay and conditions.
Two rail unions rejected a 4% pay increase from TfL for last year and a 4.4% increase for 2023.
TfL say they’ve urged workers to work so disruption can be avoided.
The eastern section, from Shenfield to Liverpool Street, will still operate a Saturday service of eight trains per hour – with three extra services per hour during the morning and evening peak.
In the west, there will be limited services, with two trains per hour running from Paddington to Reading, two trains per hour running from Paddington to Maidenhead, two trains per hour running from Paddington to Heathrow Terminal 4 and no services running to Heathrow Terminal 5.
The London Underground and Overground will continue a normal service.
TfL’s Director of the Elizabeth line, Howard Smith said: “Strikes are bad news for everyone, and we urge the TSSA and Prospect to continue to work with us to avoid industrial action.
“These strikes will have a detrimental effect during a time where we are encouraging customers back on to trains into central London, in which the Elizabeth line has played a leading role.”
A good service is expected to resume at around 9.00am tomorrow (Friday, 13 January).
