Transport for London has outlined the significant disruption expected to befall passengers using services on Boxing Day.

Tube services affected (source: TfL)

Victoria line: is expected to run between Seven Sisters and Victoria.

Central line: a limited service between West Ruislip and Hainault (via Newbury Park) with trains also running to Epping, from Leytonstone.

Due to planned engineering works replacement buses will also operate between Ealing Broadway and North Acton and between Hainault and Woodford.

District line: a limited shuttle services between High Street Kensington and Ealing Broadway and Upminster and West Ham.

Hammersmith & City and Circle lines: a limited service from Hammersmith to King’s Cross St Pancras.

Metropolitan line: a limited service between Baker Street and Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Bakerloo line: a limited service between Queens Park and Paddington.

Northern line: a limited service between Morden and Stockwell, and between East Finchley and High Barnet. Due to planned engineering works between Edgware, East Finchley and Kennington via Bank and between Edgware, East Finchley and Charing Cross, replacement buses will also operate.

Piccadilly line: a shuttle service between Heathrow terminals 1,2,3 and Acton Town and Cockfosters to Arnos Grove.

Jubilee line: there will be a limited service between Stanmore and Wembley Park only

Members of the Aslef union, representing Tube drivers, will go forward with a strike after talks with London Underground broke down earlier this week.

Some lines will only operate a limited service while others will be closed.

However, all buses will be in operation - on a Sunday service - with extra buses for shoppers heading to the West End, or Westfield shopping centres in Stratford and White City.

The congestion charge is not in operation, and there will be no parking charges on roads in Westminster.

Customers heading to the West End might are also advised to consider walking from either Victoria or St Pancras mainline railway stations.

Aslef leaders called for triple pay and a day off in lieu for working on Boxing Day.

Howard Collins, London Underground’s chief operating officer, said: “Train drivers are paid a salary that reflects some Bank holiday working, but the Aslef leadership is demanding to be paid twice for the same work and has rejected our attempts to resolve the matter.

“The scandalous actions of the ASLEF leadership are an attempt to hold Londoners to ransom, and demonstrate a wholesale disregard for our customers – making life harder for shoppers, sports fans, retail workers and businesses amongst others at an important time.

“They also show a disregard for the thousands of transport staff who will be working hard to help people get around the capital.
