TIMEFRAME expected from 4/7/2018, 12:00 AM until 4/13/2018, 11:59 PM (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London


The Aslef train drivers’ union is planning to hold a 24-hour strike in London on Friday, April 13. According to Aslef, the strike will only impact the District line and will start at 00:01 (local time) and end at 23:59. Transport for London (TfL) said that the District line will likely run at 60 percent capacity if the action goes ahead as planned.


Aslef originally scheduled the strike for March 28 but it was later postponed due to an issue with the voting process within the union. The union is organizing the strike over a dispute with TfL regarding alleged disciplinary action against a driver.


Individuals in London on April 13 are advised to allow for extra time to reach their destinations, expect crowded conditions on other rail lines, and to consult the status of services via the Transport for London website.
