Train strikes to cause disruption at Milton Keynes Central

Train routes via Milton Keynes Central are set to be disrupted by strike action taking place across the country.

Strike action is expected to take place across the country, in what the RMT report will be the biggest walk-out on the rail network since 1989.

Across the UK, staff employed by 13 major operators plan to walk out, with Milton Keynes routes set to be mainly affected on Tuesday 21st, Thursday 23rd and Saturday 25th June. 

Staff working for Avanti West Coast, c2c, Chiltern Railways, CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway, Greater Anglia, GWR, LNER, Northern, Southeastern, South Western Railway, TransPennine Express, West Midlands Trains, London Northwestern Railway are all set to strike.

An Avanti West Coast spokesperson wrote: "

"Customers should expect our existing timetable to be reduced significantly on those days, and those services that do run will be very busy. The days either side of industrial action are also likely to be affected. We will announce a revised timetable as soon as possible.

A spokesperson for National Rail has said: "Following the announcement by the RMT Union about impending strike action, the rail industry is currently working on implementing its contingency plans to minimise customer disruption as much as possible.

"In the meantime we encourage passengers who need to travel on Tuesday 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 June to make alternative travel arrangements, or allow more time to make your journey."
