As expected the 48 hour strike on the Docklands Light Railway caused massive disruption for passengers with only limited services able to run between Beckton and Poplar and from Canning Town to London City Airport. Trains were only able to run between 0700 and 1600.
The RMT had called the strike after a breakdown in relations between KeolisAmey Docklands and staff and despite talks at ACAS a breakthrough in the dispute couldn’t be reached.
If no further progress can be made between the two parties a lengthy strike will also take place between 0400 on Friday 20th April and 2359 Tuesday 24th April. The London Marathon takes place during this period which will cause major disruption in London with anyone being forced to use other modes of transport.
