Two days of strikes are expected to close down the Docklands Light Railway next week after union members rejected a below-inflation pay offer.

The whole network is expected to grind to a halt next Tuesday and Wednesday, with early services next Thursday also expected to be disrupted.

If a service can run on November 7 and 8, it is likely to be very limited, starting later and finishing much earlier, Transport for London has warned.

The walkout was called by the RMT after members who work on the DLR rejected a 4.75 pay offer, plus a one-off taxable £1,000 cost-of-living payment, from KeolisAmey Docklands, the company that runs the system under contract to TfL.

Other transport networks, such as the Tube, Elizabeth Line and London Overground, will run as normal. TfL has advised passengers to plan ahead.

“Strikes are bad news for everyone and we continue to work with our operator, KeolisAmey Docklands, to try and resolve the matter and avoid disruption to our customers,” said Glynn Barton, TfL’s chief operating officer.

“Our advice for our customers is clear; plan ahead, consider alternative routes, check before you travel and allow extra time to complete your journeys.”

Updates will be posted on the TfL website at
