London cab drivers promise 'chaos' in strike tomorrow

It is thought that up to 10,000 drivers will mass on Trafalgar Square at 2pm tomorrow. Rival app Kabbee claims that the disruption will cost the economy £125m.

The protest is the latest escalation in an increasingly tense battle between black cabs and the mobile apps which are disrupting their business model. Rival app Hailo recently opened up to private cars, having been founded as a tool for black cabs, prompting a protest which saw its offices vandalised. Grafiti on one wall read “scabs”.

Traffic disruption caused by taxi protest on Wednesday 11 June

Action by some London taxi drivers is due to take place on the afternoon and early evening of Wednesday 11 June

This is due to start at Trafalgar Square at 2pm and end before the evening peak.

With several thousand vehicles possibly involved, all driving very slowly, this will cause disruption to traffic in the local area.

While these are the published times and location, the large number of vehicles involved is likely to affect a wider area, including Parliament Square, Whitehall and other local roads.

Bus routes in this area are likely to be affected, with journeys expected to take longer and some routes likely to be diverted or curtailed. Cyclists are advised to take extra care due to the large numbers of vehicles expected on the roads.

The London Underground is likely to be the best way to get around during the afternoon and walking shorter journeys might also be an option.

TfL is working with Metropolitan Police Service and other partners to manage the impact of the traffic congestion caused by the taxis as far as possible and to restore normal conditions as quickly as possible after the protest.
