    eternal a bus Metro routes and major stations were disrupted on Friday morning due to the strike RMT and Unite union members are causing headaches for Londoners.

    Between Northfields and Heathrow Airport on Piccadilly LineTube stations at Heathrow Terminals 2, 3, 4 and 5 are likely to be affected, according to Transport for London (TfL).

    Passengers traveling to and from Heathrow are advised to use the Elizabeth Line.

    Euston, King’s Cross, Victoria and Green Park tube stations may open later and close earlier at short notice, TfL said. Hatton Cross and Hounslow West tube stations may also be affected.

    There are some delays on the Hammersmith & City Line due to train cancellations and there are also changes to the London Overground service between Gospel Oak and Barking Riverside.

    TfL has warned that underground stations affected by the strikes may open later than usual on Saturday.

    Meanwhile, there are planned strikes on Abellio buses affecting south and west London routes.

    Disturbed daily routes: 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 will also be affected, including 24, 111, 159, 285, 344, 345 and N3, N27, N63, N68, N109, N207, N381. 671 school routes are also affected.

    Bus strikes continue on Saturday, as well as December 1, 2, 3 and 9, 10, 16 and 17. In the days following the strikes, a good service will operate from around 6am, TfL said.

    More than 950 bus drivers employed by Abellio are on strike for 10 days in a dispute over pay. The Unite union said the dispute was a result of the company’s “failure to engage in meaningful pay negotiations”.

    Bus drivers who are members of Unite work at garages in Battersea, Beddington, Hayes, Southall, Twickenham and Walworth.

    RMT members are on strike over the new rosters, which are expected to reduce the number of staff available to work at Tube stations by hundreds, including at King’s Cross station.

    The union claims that station staff reductions reduce Metro’s ability to provide evacuation assistance in the event of a fire.
