The tube strike is due to start at 9.30pm on Monday evening, and services will not resume to normal until Thursday 1 May.

However some lines will still run a partial service, with trains starting from around 7am and finishing at 11pm, or 9.30pm in central London.

Overground, DLR and trams will operate as normal and there are expected to be extra bus services for passengers.

The strikes are being held because of an RMT dispute about closures and job losses due to proposed changes being made to underground services and ticket offices.



Below is a list of the tube lines that will still be working:

* Bakerloo line - trains to run between Queen's Park and Elephant and Castle every six minutes in both directions.
Trains will not stop at Edgware Road, Embankment, Kilburn Park, Lambeth North, Maida Vale, Piccadilly Circus or Regent's Park.

* Central line - no service through central London.
Tubes will run between Epping/Hainault and Leytonstone every 10 minutes, with this possibly being extended to Holborn.
The line between West Ruislip and White City will run every 10 to 15 minutes in both directions. This may be extended to Ealing Broadway.

* Circle and District lines - trains to run between WImbledon and Barking, and Ealing and Tower Hill every 12 minutes in both directions.
Tubes will not stop at Aldgate East, Blackfriars, Gloucester Road, Sloane Square, Stepney Green or Temple.

* Hammersmith and City line - it is planned that tubes will still run between Hammersmith and Aldgate every 10 minutes.
Trains will not stop at Barbican, Euston Square or Great Portland Street.

* Jubilee line - trains will still run between Wembley Park and Stratford, approximately every seven minutes.
Bermondsey, Canada Water, St John's Wood, Southwark and Swiss Cottage stations will not be serviced.

* Metropolitan line - tubes will run between Harrow on the HIll and Aldgate around every 10 minutes.
No stopping at Barbican, Euston Square or Great Portland Street.

* Northern line - service to run across the whole of the line, serving both the Bank and Charing Cross branches with tubes running every five minutes.
However tubes will not stop at the following stations: Angel, Borough, Chalk Farm, Charing Cross, Clapham North, Clapham South, Colliers Wood, Embankment, Goodge Street, Hampstead, Leicester Square, Mill Hill East, Mornington Crescent, Old Street, Oval, South Wimbledon, Tooting Bec and Warren Street

* Piccadilly line - No service throughout central London.
Trains are planned to run between Acton Town and Heathrow around every 20 minutes; and every 12 minutes between Arnos Grove and Cockfosters.
Tubes will not stop at Heathrow terminals four and five, Hounslow West or Southgate.

* Victoria line - Under current plans trains will run between Seven Sisters and Victoria every five minutes in both directions. This could be extended to Brixton.
Trains will not stop at Pimlico, Vauxhall or Warren Street.

* Waterloo and City line - no service

* Heathrow Express - a reduced service to run on Tuesday and Wednesday due to separate strike action by RMT. Trains are due to run at a rate of two an hour.

For people who choose to drive rather than take public transport during the two day strike, an analyst has estimated that drivers should expect to spend double the amount of time sitting in queues of traffic.

On Tuesday, for drivers heading into London at 6am, for a typical 60 minute journey, delays are expected to be around 25 minutes, increasing to 35 minutes for 7am journeys and peaking at 50 minutes at 8am.

Drivers travelling at 9am can expect delays of 40 minutes, while those leaving an hour later need to plan for an extra 35 minutes of travel time. Heading out of London delays are expected to be between 20 and 35 minutes.

A spokesman for INRIX said: "We are likely to see a repeat of the previous strike’s 12-mile queue in to the capital from Junction 4 of the London-bound M4 to Kensington from around 6.30am which didn’t clear until around the 11am extended rush hour.

"As a result of this, a distance that typically takes around 30 minutes for drivers to negotiate could take almost an hour. By the time traffic hits its peak at 8am, the short stretch of Camberwell New Road up to Vauxhall in London is likely to take 40 minutes – four times as long as on a typical day.”
