Commuters mob The Elizabeth Line as it remains open on Strike Day

The Elizabeth line came to the rescue of thousands of commuters determined to get in and out of central London despite the Tube strike.Regular services were running on the £20bn line, which opened less than a month ago, between Abbey Wood and Paddington, from 7am.Transport for London used managers and volunteers to open the four London Underground-run stations on the central section of the Elizabeth line - Tottenham Court Road, Whitechapel, Farringdon and Liverpool Street.The Elizabeth line train drivers are employed by a contractor, MTR, rather than London Underground - meaning they were not drawn into the strike, which involved the RMT and Unite unions.
