Rail Strikes: Travel Disruption across UK As Fallout Continues- Tasnim News Agency

Travel woes across Britain are due to continue as the fallout from rail strikes causes knock-on disruption.

Talks have resumed in an attempt to resolve the bitter dispute over jobs, pay and conditions following a mass strike of rail workers on Tuesday, with further strikes planned on Thursday and Saturday, The Guardian reported.

But transport bosses warned services would be disrupted on Wednesday and through the week, with many starting later than normal because overnight workers, including Network Rail (NR) signalers and control room staff, were part of Tuesday’s strike.

Wednesday was going to be “quite a messy day”, said Anthony Smith, the chief executive of Transport Focus.

“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,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today program. “Today is going to be quite a messy day still. So please do not assume that this is a normal day.”

About 60% of trains will run across Wednesday as a whole, and some operators will stop services earlier than normal.
