Meanwhile, planned strikes are taking place on Abellio bus services, with south and west London routes affected.
The following day’s routes are blocked: 3, 27, 45, 63, 68, 109, 130, 156, 195, 196, 201, 207, 267, 270, 278, 315, 322, 350, 367, 381, 407, 415, 427, 433, 464, 482, 490, 969, C10, E5, E7, E10, E11, H20, H25, H28, H26, P5, P13, R68, R70, S4, U5, U7, U9 and 481.
Night and 24-hour bus routes including the 24, 111, 159, 285, 344, 345 and N3, N27, N63, N68, N109, N207, and N381 will also be affected. 671 School Route is also affected.
TfL said bus strikes are continuing on Saturday as well as on 1, 2, 3 and 9, 10, 16 and 17 December. In the days after the strike, good service will start by around 6 am.
More than 950 bus drivers employed by Abellio have been on strike for 10 days in a pay dispute. The Unite union said the dispute was the result of the company’s “failure to enter into meaningful wage negotiations”.
The bus drivers, who are members of Unite, are based at garages in Battersea, Beddington, Hayes, Southall, Twickenham and Walworth.
RMT members are striking over new rosters, including at King’s Cross station, which is expected to cut the number of staff available to work tube stations by hundreds, according to the union.
The union claims that reductions in station staff reduce the Underground’s ability to assist in evacuations in the event of a fire.
