NATIONAL Express East Anglia (NXEA) has confirmed that the 48-hour train strike will go ahead tomorrow as planned.

Members of the ASLEF, RMT and TSSA unions will go on strike at midnight tonight (Wednesday) after three days of talks with the rail operator failed to reach an agreement.

As a result an hourly service will run between Stansted Airport and London Liverpool Street on Thursday and Friday, operating to the maximum number of carriages. They also plan to run a limited service between Broxbourne and London Liverpool Street, plus a morning and evening peak train (in each direction) between Cambridge and Liverpool Street.

However, it is likely these services will be extremely busy and NXEA has urged people to spread their journey times wherever possible.
