Travel advice: Arsenal

Updated, Tuesday at 13:30 GMT

The possibility of travel problems for Manchester United fans attending the game against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium has been eased after the planned London Tube strike was called off.

The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) and Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) had announced a 48-hour strike involving London Underground staff from Tuesday to Thursday, which would have had a major impact on supporters' travelling to and from the Arsenal game.

However, it was confirmed on Tuesday lunchtime that the RMT and TSSA unions have agreed to pause the industrial action, which was due to start at 21:00 GMT, so that further talks can take place.

Supporters are encouraged to consider walking to and from Emirates Stadium from King’s Cross, St. Pancras, Liverpool Street and Euston stations. Please use walkit.com to plan the best suggested walking route.

Supporters planning to drive to and from the match should note matchday parking restrictions in operation in Islington and Hackney. They should be aware that, while First Capital Connect train services will be operating from Finsbury Park as normal on Wednesday, they are expected to be much busier than normal.

In addition, while London Overground services will be in operation on Wednesday, they are expected to be extremely busy, particularly after the match, and stations may need to close temporarily at times to prevent overcrowding.

All supporters coming to the match are encouraged to plan extra time for their journeys and to check www.tfl.gov.uk and follow @TfLTravelAlerts for the latest travel information.
