DSC_0003A major strike is set to cause significant disruptions for commuters and travelers who use the London Underground next week, with three of the Tube lines expected to be affected.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union, as well as the drivers’ union Aslef, said that they plan to stage a walkout on November 7.

The 24-hour walkout by union members will shut down the Central and Waterloo & City lines, effectively meaning that there will be no service on those lines for the entire day.

Meanwhile, workers plan to stage a walkout beginning at noon on November 7 on the Piccadilly line. The Piccadilly line is the only Tube line that serves London Heathrow , which could make for significant challenges for air travelers hoping to get to and from the airport next week.

Transport for London said it will deploy extra buses to assist with the backlog in commuter traffic, while TfL staff members will be present at Tube stations to assist travelers with information on how to get to their destinations.
