UPDATE 23 March: This strike has now been called off, though the engineering works will still go ahead.

London's trams will be affected by strike action and planned engineering works late March through to late April 2024 — in a double whammy of disruption.

It kicks off on Sunday 24 March, with Unite the Union members striking until Thursday 28 March. Although trams will still run, the entire network will be affected, with a reduced service. TfL is urging people to use alternative methods of getting around where possible. No replacement bus services will be in operation.

The day after the strikes end — Friday 29 March — planned engineering works kick in, with no services east of East Croydon station (i.e. trams running to New Addington, Elmers End or Beckenham Junction) running until Wednesday 24 April. In this case, replacement bus services WILL run.

More information on the strikes can be found on TfL's website.

It's not clear what this particular strike action is for — we've contacted Unite the Union for details.
