The 24-hour Tube strike due to start tomorrow morning will go ahead, union bosses insisted today.

That’s according to an article in the Evening Standard that says it threatens to bring chaos โ€“ and likely station and line closures โ€“ to five Tube lines.


The lines affected are the Victoria, Central, Northern, Jubilee and Piccadilly, with RMT drivers told not to clock on from 4.30am tomorrow.

Northern leaders savaged the Integrated Rail Plan at a meeting in Leeds yesterday calling it “woefully inadequate” but Carlisle’s MP says the region has a lot to be positive about.

An article on in-Cumbria says Transport for the North’s board members met in Leeds on Wednesday to discuss the controversial rail improvement plan released by the UK Government.

A new line between Leeds and Manchester was amongst the pledges not delivered in the document. Northern Powerhouse Rail, a new network for the North of England, was also scaled back.

A further public consultation is being held on ยฃ30 million plans for the transformation of Halifax rail station.

An article on Insider Media Limited says the West Yorkshire Combined Authority funded scheme includes a new two-storey station building, with waiting lounges on both the ground and first floor level, improved toilet facilities and opportunities for additional retail options.

Access to the station would be improved with a modern footbridge providing step-free access to and from the town centre.

The Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK has praised the rail industry for its efforts in taking the lead in ending violence against women and girls.

Anthea Sullyโ€™s comments to Rail Director comes as today marks the start of White Ribbon Day – 16 days of action to end violence against women.

Many rail organisations, including railbusinessdaily, are White Ribbon UK-accredited, several have created a Safe Spaces widget on their website, and all train operating companies have been offering free tickets to those escaping to refuge.
