Bus strikes to cause disruption throughout city

There will be two 24-hour strikes Credit: PA

Bus strikes are planned on Monday 29 December and Monday 5 January. They will cause disruption to bus services in east and central London. The dispute, involving members of the Unite union, is over pay and conditions.

The two 24-hour strikes are likely to result in severe disruption on a number of bus routes and some services will not operate. Some Tube services in London are expected to be busier than normal - so allow more time to complete your journeys.

The strike on Monday 29 December will affect services during the day, plus some services operating on Monday night into the early hours of Tuesday 30 December.

Thirteen bus routes operating in east London are affected, including some routes which travel into central London.

25 (24 hour route) - Oxford Circus to Ilford; 26 - Waterloo to Hackney Wick; 30 - Hackney Wick to Marble Arch; 58 - East Ham to Walthamstow Central; 236 - Finsbury Park to Hackney Wick; 308 - Wanstead to Clapton; 339 - Leytonstone to Shadwell; 425 - Clapton to Stratford; N26 - Trafalgar Square to Chingford; N550 - Trafalgar Square to Canning Town; N551 - Piccadilly Circus to Galleons Reach; RV1 - Covent Garden to Tower Gateway; W14 - Leyton to Woodford Bright; W15 - Cogan Avenue Estate to Hackney Town Hall.
