UK Network Rail Strike: Heathrow Express to Shorten Operating Hours

UK Network Rail Strike: Heathrow Express to Shorten Operating Hours

Heathrow Express plans to run services every 15 minutes during shortened operating hours if a threatened 24-hour walk-out by Network Rail workers goes ahead from 5pm on the UK Bank Holiday, Monday 25th May 2015. Customers are being advised to check Twitter, @heathrowexpress, and website for latest information.

Heathrow Express is expected to run from 5.10am to 6.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday and from 7.30am to 6.30pm on Tuesday 26th May. The Heathrow Connect stopping service is expected to not run at all on Monday and Tuesday.

Should the RMT and TSSA unions’ strike by signallers and maintenance staff take place, on Monday the normal Heathrow Express timetable will be in operation until 6.30pm, and on Tuesday services will run between 7.30am and 6.30pm.

Trains between London Heathrow terminals are also set to finish at 6.30pm on Monday and run only between 7.30am and 6.30pm on Tuesday. Outside of these times, transferring passengers are advised to use the London Underground or bus services.

Should the strike go ahead, the Heathrow Connect stopping service between Paddington and Heathrow will not run at all on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Keith Harding, Operations Director for Heathrow Express, said: “Our advice to customers using the Heathrow Express on Monday and Tuesday is: Check before you travel. You can get the latest information on our website, heathrowexpress.com, and Twitter account, @heathrowexpress.

“Things are developing. When we know more, we will let you know more.”
