London Underground and First Great Western strike: Heathrow Express services to run as normal

  • 7 Jul 2015

Heathrow Express plans to run a normal service during this week’s London Underground and First Great Western strike.

Heathrow Express trains will run between London Paddington and Heathrow Airport every 15 minutes. Trains will operate according to the normal timetable. 

Heathrow Express Director, Fraser Brown, said: “Our advice to passengers is to check before they travel. We will be keeping them up to date on our website, heathrowexpress.com, and on Twitter, @heathrowexpress.” 

London Underground workers who are members of the RMT union have voted in favour of a 24-hour walkout, starting at 18.30 this Wednesday July 8. Members of the Aslef union will walk out from 21.30. 

In a separate dispute, First Great Western workers who are members of the RMT union have voted in favour of a 48-hour strike, starting at 18.30 on Wednesday. 

Heathrow Connect services are due to run as normal. The inter-terminal transfer service, which takes passengers from Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 to Terminal 4, will also be unaffected. 

London Underground services are expected to be suspended from Wednesday evening and all day Thursday.
