Network Rail warns of delays to trains over Easter

If you're going away by train for Easter, Network Rail is warning that you should check the timetable before you travel.

More Bank Holiday engineering works are taking place on several lines across South London.

Services from Waterloo, Victoria, London Bridge and Cannon Street are affected.

Network Rail says the work is needed because of the increase in train passengers.

Network Rail's Chris Denham said that works need to take place because rail travel is "booming".

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union on the Piccadilly Line were "solidly" supporting a 24-hour walkout which ends at 9pm on Thursday night.

Members of the Aslef union were also on strike.

Passengers were advised to find alternative ways to get to Heathrow, which is busy with Easter travellers.

RMT congratulates our members for the rock-solid and determined support for today's action. They are making a stand against bullying, the ripping-up of procedures, and in defence of the safety of staff and passengers alike.

The blame for this action rests solely with the LU management who have walked away from numerous opportunities to resolve the issues at the heart of this dispute. It is time for LU on the Piccadilly Line to end the macho posturing and start talking seriously with our representatives.

– RMT general secretary Mick Cash

The unions claim there has been a "comprehensive breakdown" in industrial relations.

This indefensible strike has been called to back drivers who refused to drive Piccadilly Line trains on their shifts - without good reason - resulting in delays to our customers.

– London Underground operations director Pat Hansberr

London Underground operations director Pat Hansberry said: "There will be no service on the Piccadilly Line today due to 24-hour strike action, though other Tube lines will continue to run as normal. Our customers are advised to check our real-time travel information to help them get around."
