Tube Strike Travel Information for England v Slovenia

Press Release   •   Oct 03, 2017 13:27 BST

Tube strike will prevent London Midland services calling at Wembley Central

London Midland is advising customers that, should the Tube strike go ahead on Thursday, it will be unable to call at Wembley Central as planned to pick up fans after the England v Slovenia match.

This follows TfL's confirmation that Wembley Central station will close between 1700 and 2300 on the day of the game if the industrial action takes place.

London Midland's Head of West Coast Services, Steve Helfet, said "We are grateful to TfL for giving us early confirmation that Wembley Central station will close for the England match, should the strike go ahead. This would mean that our services due to pick up fans after the game will no longer be able to call.

However I'm pleased we can give people enought time to make alternative arrangements."
