DLR strike

Service on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) has no service on the entire line due to a signalling fault, just one day after a two-day strike closed the service. Earlier, severe delays had caused morning travel disruption for London commuters.

A Transport for London (TfL) spokesperson said: "The Docklands Light Railway is currently suspended while we fix a signal systems failure. London Underground are accepting their tickets by any reasonable route."

On the day the two-day walkout by members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) finished, the fallout of the earlier disruption appear to have continued on the DLR, with delays occurring between Woolwich Arsenal and Stratford and Bank Stations.

Many commuters also complained of the trains running slowly, not appearing on time and even having to be driven manually during the disruption.

The delays, which again occurred during morning rush, were not a repeat of the scenes that took place between 3 and 4 November which saw severe overcrowding in stations such as Canada Water and Canary Wharf. Crowd control measures also had to be brought in at London Bridge station during rush hour.

TfL warned there may be some minor delays to services on the morning the strike finished and commuters are being advised to check the TFL website for updates.

Kevin Thomas, managing director of KeolisAmey Docklands, previously accused the RMT of striking rather than seeking to resolve their issues.

"It is extremely frustrating that RMT appear intent on proceeding with strike action rather than seeking resolution to the issues," he said. "Such action will cause unnecessary disruption for our passengers, which I believe is avoidable."
