Newcastle United fans travelling to Arsenal on Monday could be affected by a London Underground strike
The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) has announced a 48-hour strike involving their members working for London Underground.
If the strike goes ahead, this will affect supporters travelling to Newcastle United's Barclays Premier League fixture at Arsenal on Monday (28th April).
TfL has plans to ensure London can keep moving during these periods but supporters are advised to expect significant disruption.
Strike action will commence from around 9pm on Monday (28th April) and continue throughout the whole of Tuesday (29th April) and Wednesday (30th April). Services will not return to normal until the morning of Thursday, 1st May.
Supporters are advised that Tube services may be affected at stations around the Emirates Stadium before kick-off and are strongly urged to identify other means of transport for their homebound journeys following the match, as it is unlikely that there will be any Tube services in operation.
Possible alternatives include:
- Walk to King's Cross, St. Pancras International, Liverpool Street and Euston to connect with National Rail and local bus services
- First Capital Connect train services will be operating from Finsbury Park as normal but, please note, they are expected to be much busier than normal
