Strikes fail to cause chaos

first_img Share whatsapp THE 3 October tube strike failed to cause the chaos predicted by union bosses, with 93 per cent of Oyster users still taking public transport.Extra bus and river services, as well as the 40 per cent of the underground network that was maintained, allowed almost all commuters to use the network, according to new data released by Transport for London (TfL).The news comes ahead of a further wave of strikes to hit the capital tomorrow and Wednesday.More than a hundred extra buses, capacity for around 10,000 more journeys on the river, and marshalled taxi ranks have been organised. Planned roadworks are being delayed where possible, and TfL says it will be working to keep road traffic flowing around key transport hubs.City A.M. personality of the year Boris Johnson, said: “Londoners have shown that they will not be deterred from their daily business by these pointless strikes. “The action of the union leaderships may cause some inconvenience but we are determined to keep the capital moving by providing a plethora of alternatives so that people can get around.” whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com KCS-content Sunday 31 October 2010 11:41 pmcenter_img Strikes fail to cause chaos Show Comments ▼ Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?
