so a 95 per cent level means a 30-minute trip will take 29 minutes more than with no traffic.\nThe last time the congestion in London was at the levels seen this week was during the RMT strike on March 1, when it reached an unprecedented high of 119 per cent. This suggests that fewer people were on the roads in the capital both this morning and yesterday morning, when compared to the strike in March.\nThere were 2,046 traffic jams in the capital this morning, covering a total length of 834 miles.","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Mark Duell"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/22/09/1655886803820_lc_galleryImage_tomtom.JPG"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Busy London Overground services and queues outside stations","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html#lc-id-51","dateModified":"2022-06-22T09:16:07+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-22T09:16:07+01:00","articleBody":"The London Overground services that are running this morning are very busy, with queues forming outside stations as these tweets show:","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Mark Duell"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/22/10/59381985-0-image-m-21_1655890798883.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Don't be Vladimir Putin's 'friend', Tory MP Tobias Ellwood tells unions","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html#lc-id-50","dateModified":"2022-06-22T09:15:23+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-22T09:07:16+01:00","articleBody":"Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood told Sky News today this week's rail strikes are causing 'huge self-harm' to Britain, and urged the unions to avoid being Vladimir Putin's 'friend'.","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Mark Duell"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/22/10/59381985-0-image-m-21_1655890798883.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Greater Anglia trains due to fault with river swing bridge in Suffolk","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html#lc-id-49","dateModified":"2022-06-22T09:06:36+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-22T09:06:36+01:00","articleBody":"A fault with a river swing bridge at Somerleyton in Suffolk today means all lines are blocked, which is affecting Greater Anglia trains between Norwich and Lowestoft.

We really do understand the pressure that those on low incomes are facing at the moment, they are struggling to make ends meet.'\nSetting out why public sector pay could not keep pace with inflation, he added: 'If we don't have those restraints, inflation will go higher for longer. And that will only undermine the pay packages of workers, particularly the most vulnerable workers, for a longer period of time. We're taking the action, we're taking a firm line with, for example, the RMT union, precisely because we want to protect this erosion of pay packets by inflation.'","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Mark Duell"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/22/10/59381985-0-image-m-21_1655890798883.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Transport Focus says today will be 'quite a messy day' for rail passengers","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10938465/TfL-Tube-strike-LIVE-UK-rail-updates-Day-2-updates-chaos-continues-London-Underground.html#lc-id-29","dateModified":"2022-06-22T07:52:00+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-22T07:52:00+01:00","articleBody":"Disruption caused by yesterday's rail strikes will mean that 'today is going to be quite a messy day', for travellers, the independent watchdog for transport users said this morning.\nAnthony Smith, the chief executive of Transport Focus, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'Today is going to be quite a messy day still.\n'Virtually all of the train companies have special timetables in place, services are starting up late and trains and staff are not in the right place.

'It is right that we look to modernise our rail services, it is right we take into account perhaps the longer term impacts of the pandemic with the changing patterns of the way people work. 'I think people recognise also that during the pandemic, the Government put in billions of pounds, I think, some £16 billion of extra support for the rail industry. That's something like £600 per family in the UK. But that can't be continued. We need to recognise this and make a changes and think this strike is unjustified and it's hurting a lot of people, particularly people trying to get to hospital for their appointments and also you have NHS staff trying to get to the hospitals to help them.'

There is currently no service on the following two London Overground routes due to yesterday's strike action impacting staff availability today: Romford and UpminsterRichmond and Willesden Junction The latter means no Overground trains on the Richmond-Stratford line are serving Richmond, Kew Gardens, Gunnersbury, South Acton or Acton Central at the moment. However, trains are running on the rest of the line between Willesden Junction and Stratford. The first direct train from Richmond to Stratford is expected at 12.17pm, while the first direct train in the opposite direction will be at 11.59am. There is a good service on all other Overground routes, according to Transport for London. 10:52 Are the rail strikes going ahead tomorrow and is there another Tube strike? The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will meet with Network Rail and the train companies today in another attempt to break the deadlock. However, even if any deal was struck today it would still be too late to prevent major disruption tomorrow - with about 20 per cent of services set to run. The same level of service is expected on Saturday, which is the third day of the national strike this week. The Underground strike was held only yesterday, with most of the network set to have a normal service tomorrow. There is no Tube strike planned tomorrow. But there will be no service from Queen’s Park to Harrow & Wealdstone on the Bakerloo line tomorrow; while on the Richmond and Wimbledon branches of the District line, services will only operate between 7.30am and 6.30pm. Transport for London said there is also the 'potential for disruption due to the strike impacting London Underground staff availability, meaning customers should still check before they travel' 10:48 What is the latest live travel information on the London Underground? Problems are starting to ease on the London Underground network this morning, with the Jubilee line delays now downgraded from 'severe' to 'minor'; and the District line now running a good service having been suffering 'severe delays' an hour ago. However, there is still major disruption on the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Piccadilly. Six stations that were closed as of 9.30am due to staffing issues have now opened - those being Arsenal, Battersea Power Station, Bayswater, Eastcote, Hampstead and Lancaster Gate. The only station that remains closed 'due to unavailability of staff' is Latimer Road.

The Department for Transport said it is 'working with the rail industry to overhaul the sector and deliver a regular, reliable service, seven days a week'. A spokesman said: "These are desperately needed reforms that modernise the railway and put it on a sustainable footing for passengers and taxpayers. 'Unions have shut down big parts of the rail network, hitting local businesses and unfairly cutting people off from hospitals, schools and work. 'However, early data shows that unlike in the past, many people now have the opportunity to work from home, so we haven't even a rush to the roads, as traffic has instead gone online, which means the unions aren't having the overall impact they might have hoped.' We're working with the rail industry to overhaul the sector and deliver a regular, reliable service, seven days a week.

However it is slightly down on the level at the same time yesterday – the first day of the rail strikes – which was 98 per cent. Yesterday’s figure was also a big rise of 21 percentage points on the 77 per cent level recorded at 8am on Tuesday of last week. The congestion level represents the extra travel time for drivers on average compared to baseline uncongested conditions - so a 95 per cent level means a 30-minute trip will take 29 minutes more than with no traffic. The last time the congestion in London was at the levels seen this week was during the RMT strike on March 1, when it reached an unprecedented high of 119 per cent. This suggests that fewer people were on the roads in the capital both this morning and yesterday morning, when compared to the strike in March. There were 2,046 traffic jams in the capital this morning, covering a total length of 834 miles. tomtom 09:16 Busy London Overground services and queues outside stations The London Overground services that are running this morning are very busy, with queues forming outside stations as these tweets show: Pretty busy on the overground today! #railstrikes #homerton pic.twitter.com/mINPuhkso8— Sarah Sarah (@E9_Resident) June 22, 2022 The @RMTunion strike is still effective a day on.

The Justice Secretary said the strikes were 'deeply regrettable' and reform was necessary on the railways. 'We've, of course, got to reform the way the railways operate, given the new ways to working on the effect that has on commuter travel,' he told LBC Radio today. 'But there are also old practices, which frankly, are well out of date and unnecessary, which need to be reformed.' He added: 'I think Network Rail are taking the right approach. We know that the cost of living challenge is there, we know that it affects workers across the board. 'But the one thing that will keep inflation higher for longer and undermine pay packets for longer is if we have spiralling public sector pay increases beyond what is responsible. And that's what's at issue here. It is precisely to protect the wages of those on the lowest incomes that we need to hold the line.' Dominic Raab says it is 'regrettable' that 'blue-collar workers' are the ones who will be hit by rail strikes 'more than anyone else' as he warns 'spiralling public sector pay increases' could lead to higher inflation.@NickFerrariLBC pic.twitter.com/pB0iiDRoBl— LBC (@LBC) June 22, 2022 08:24 Southeastern trains are disrupted by signalling problem There is now a fault with the signalling system between Tunbridge Wells and Hastings which is causing disruption to Southeastern trains in Kent and East Sussex.

However the Bakerloo, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines remain suspended. 07:53 Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab calls for pay restraint on the railways Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab said today that the rising inflation figures - with a rate of 9.1 per cent revealed today - showed the need for pay restraint in the public sector and on the railways. He told Sky News there was a risk of a 'vicious cycle' of rising wages pushing inflation even higher if union demands were met, saying the Government was taking a 'firm line'. 'We are facing a global struggle against inflation, if you look at the UK figures they are broadly comparable to the US or, in Europe, the Dutch and the Belgians, and it's going to be difficult. We really do understand the pressure that those on low incomes are facing at the moment, they are struggling to make ends meet.' Setting out why public sector pay could not keep pace with inflation, he added: 'If we don't have those restraints, inflation will go higher for longer. And that will only undermine the pay packages of workers, particularly the most vulnerable workers, for a longer period of time. We're taking the action, we're taking a firm line with, for example, the RMT union, precisely because we want to protect this erosion of pay packets by inflation.' 'We can't allow the unions to win this argument.'Deputy PM @DominicRaab accuses rail unions of perusing strike action in a "very militant way", adding that their actions "will only hurt the poorest in our society".#KayBurley: https://t.co/Unn57w5m6U????

'If you are going to travel by train check before you leave the house, check on the way to the station and, for goodness sake, bring a bottle of water with you.' 07:49 Waterloo & City line is back up and running on London Underground The Waterloo & City line, which was completely suspended yesterday, is now running again this morning - as are the Northern and Victoria lines.

Only around 60 per cent of the 20,000 normal weekday services will be able to operate today. Walkouts by signallers and control room staff who would usually work overnight from last night into this morning meant trains left depots later than normal, delaying the start of services. Trains normally leave depots between around 3am and 4am, and passenger services begin between around 5am and 6am. But the process of taking trains out of depots today only begin when signallers on daytime shifts started work at 6am to 6.30am, meaning no passenger services ran before 6.30am. The start of services is expected to take up to four hours in some locations. But in London, services will increase quickly as trains do not have to travel long distances from depots to stations. Network Rail said that 'even during the day the service will stay thinner' than usual and some operators will wind down services slightly earlier than normal. 06:56 Disruption on Northern services through Burnley due to lineside fire Northern Rail services, which were crippled by industrial action yesterday, are already facing other issues this morning after a fire next to the railway at Burnley Manchester Road meant trains are unable to run between Blackburn and Todmorden / Hebden Bridge.
