More disruption for Stansted Express passengers

Stansted Express services are currently only running once per hour between Liverpool Street and the airport, owing to a third week of industrial action on the National Express East Anglia route.

The strike is taking place today and tomorrow (August 13 and 14), and means that Stansted Express services are limited to one per hour, departing at 55 minutes past each hour in both directions.

For a full list of National Express services affected by the industrial action, visit The Stansted Express website warns of further possible strikes, which at present are planned for August 20/21. For more information visit

  • Yet another series of strikes on the rail network. This follows closely recent strikes on the London Underground, and on other parts of the regional rail system. The Secretary of State for Transport should get a grip on the ever increasing industrial action on the rail system, and sort out the mess.

  • Stansted Express services should return to normal today, after a pay deal was met. The following statement has appeared on the Stansted Express homepage:

    “We’re pleased to confirm that industrial action by the Aslef, RMT and TSSA Trade Unions has been suspended and normal services will resume on Stansted Express throughout the morning on Friday 14th August.

    There may be some alterations to the normal service timetable on early morning services as a result of displaced trains and train crew.”
