Docklands Light Railway passengers are being urged to plan ahead if a proposed 48 hour strike takes place.

Members of the RMT union are due to walk out from 4am on Wednesday due to a dispute with operators KeolisAmey Docklands.

Transport for London bosses have said that if the strike goes ahead, it is unlikely that any services will run on Wednesday and Thursday. Passengers looking to travel on the morning of Good Friday may also be affected.

Instead, 49 extra buses will be added to boost services on key routes around the DLR network.

Tube and Overground services will be running in east London as normal but are expected to be busier than normal.

Mark Davis, TfL’s interim general manager of the DLR, said: “We thank everyone for their patience while the strike action takes place.

“We urge the RMT and KeolisAmey Docklands to continue with discussions in order to settle the dispute.”
