Over the next eight days Watford journeys are set to be hit by disruption from both national and tube strikes.

Strikes impacting the UK's rail network, organised by ASLEF, are set for Saturday (September 30) and October 4, with the latter coinciding with a tube strike date.

National Rail has warned there will be no London Northwestern Railway or West Midlands Railway trains operating on those days. London Northwestern Railway manages Watford Junction and other non-TfL local stations.

ASLEF has also announced an overtime ban across the rail network today (September 29) and from October 2 to 6. During that time buses will replace trains on the Abbey Line between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey.

According to the train drivers’ union, the overtime ban will more widely “seriously disrupt the network” because of how much it relies on drivers working their rest days.

Members of the RMT working on the London Underground will walk out on October 4 and 6, which the union warned would shut down Tube services in the capital.

TfL expects most services to be “severely affected” or not run on those days, there will also be disruption the following mornings. Elizibeth line, London Overground, DLR, and tram services are not set to be affected.
