DLR trains will not run for two days next week if strike goes ahead

Docklands Light Railway (DLR) trains will not run for two days next week as workers on the line are set to go on strike.

Transport for London (TfL) is advising customers to plan ahead, consider alternative routes and allow extra time to complete their journeys due to the planned RMT strike on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Customers are advised to visit for the latest information.

RMT union members who work for TfL’s operator KeolisAmey Docklands are planning the strike in a dispute over pay and conditions.

TfL said if the action goes ahead there will be no service expected on the whole of the DLR. If any services do run they will be very limited, starting later and finishing much earlier than normal.

London Buses, the Elizabeth Line, London Overground, London Underground and the IFS Cloud Cable Car services will operate as normal but may be busier than usual. Santander Cycles and e-scooters, which are part of the TfL trial, will be available for hire.

On Thursday morning, DLR services may experience some minor disruption due to the previous day’s action. Customers are advised to check before they travel.

Glynn Barton, TfL’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “Strikes are bad news for everyone and we continue to work with our operator, KeolisAmey Docklands, to try and resolve the matter and avoid disruption to our customers.

“Our advice for our customers is clear; plan ahead, consider alternative routes, check before you travel and allow extra time to complete your journeys.”
