Extra Crossrail works took place during Tube strike

Extra Crossrail and London Underground engineering works took place during last week’s Tube strikes, it has been confirmed, as more walkouts were announced.

Trade union Unite said members working as electrical and maintenance technicians, linesmen and signallers on the underground network would down tools for 24 hours from 6:30pm on 25 August and from the same time on 27 August.

This follows a strike that shut down the Tube network on 6 August.

London Underground and Crosrail took advantage of trains not running on this date by carrying out extra engineering work.

Work took place at Walthamstow Central to get ahead of schedule with track replacement, while Crossrail took the opportunity to undertake breakthrough works from the former Metropolitan line ticket hall at Moorgate.
