Passengers may experience travel disruption getting to, or from, Heathrow Airport on Boxing Day.
A combination of Tube strikes by drivers’ union ASLEF and planned Crossrail improvement works by Network Rail on the same day means travel to the airport will be difficult.
The planned rail improvement work means that there will be no Heathrow Express or Heathrow Connect services, so passengers are advised to plan their alternative journeys in advance and leave plenty of time to get to the airport.
A statement on the Heathrow Express website says: “Due to essential Crossrail improvement works, Heathrow Express will not be running any services between London Paddington and Heathrow Airport on December 25 and 26.
“Our inter terminal transfer service between Heathrow Terminal 4 and Terminals 1 & 3 will continue to run in line with the planned timetable.We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
