Docklands Light Railway strike may hit travel next week

Friday, November 3, 2023


Two days of strikes may close down the Docklands Light Railway next week after union members rejected a below-inflation pay offer.

The whole network will possibly grind to a halt next Tuesday and Wednesday. This may also disrupt early services next Thursday.

If a service can run on November 7 and 8 it is likely to be very brief. It will start later and finish much earlier, Transport for London has warned.

RMT called the walkout after members who work on the Docklands Light Railway rejected a 4.75 pay offer and a one-off taxable £1,000 cost-of-living payment, from KeolisAmey Docklands.

This company runs the system under contract to TfL.

Other transport networks, such as the Tube, Elizabeth Line and London Overground, will run as normal. TfL has advised passengers to plan ahead.

Glynn Barton, CEO of TfL said that strikes are bad news for everyone.

They will continue to work with their operator, KeolisAmey Docklands, to try and resolve the matter and avoid disruption to their customers.

Their advice for their customers is clear; plan ahead, consider alternative routes, check before you travel and allow extra time to complete your journeys.
