The tube strike is over, but the next one is looming
This week saw London brought to its knees by a two day tube strike. Personally I can say it was some of the worst commutes I’ve had. The problem wasn’t that there weren’t enough buses for the dispossessed commuters, it wasn’t that the underground staff who were working didn’t know what lines were open or not (most did) and it wasn’t that the weather was awful, the real problem was the extra cars on the road. My journey was only from Ealing to Oxford Circus, but it took me over and hour to get from Oxford Street. The main problem was that the roads were crammed with extra cars.
There is another week of strikes planned for after the bank holiday. Whether it will take place, be as chaotic as this week’s one will remain to be seen.
