For those who are having to still attempt to commute into my ward in the City of London this week, I’ve tried to consolidate the best advice and guidance as at midnight on 21st June. This is specific to Liverpool Street Station.
Network Rail: Travel information
Due to industrial action, there will be a special railway timetable in operation across England, Scotland and Wales from Monday 21 to Sunday 26 June (inclusive). Only around half of Britain’s rail network will be open on strike days with a very limited service running on lines that are open between 07:30 and 18:30.

Know the time of your last train and only travel by train if necessary on strike days. You can find out more about refunds and cross ticket acceptance by visiting National Rail’s website.
On the days that follow the strikes (Wednesday 22, Friday 24 and Sunday 26 June) the whole network will reopen but some disruption is still expected on these days.
Check your journey by visiting National Rail or your train operating company’s website.
