The London Underground has revealed its official map of all night Tube services due to be operational in less than three months’ time.

The new map shows customers which Tube lines and stations will operate 24-hour services over weekends from 12th September.

Meanwhile LU faces a strike next month by Tube drivers over pay and conditions for the all night Tube service.

Members of Aslef are walking out for 24 hours from 9.30pm on 8th July.

The RMT and TSSA unions are also balloting their members for industrial action, with the results due at the end of the month.

Gareth Powell, London Underground’s director of strategy and service development, says:

The introduction of the Night Tube is a historic step in our modernisation of the Underground.

The Night Tube map shows our customers exactly when and where they can use this landmark service, which will make their late night journeys quicker and easier than ever before. As well making life easier for people, the Night Tube will also boost London’s night-time economy – supporting thousands of jobs and stimulating hundreds of millions of pounds in economic growth.

Finn Brennan, Aslef’s district organiser for the Tube, said his union were not opposed to all night services, but:

It’s easy enough to produce a map, but if London Underground management want to have an all night service in September, then they need to sit down and negotiate a fair deal for the staff they expect to provide it.

Last week train drivers on London Underground voted by a record 97% to strike over London Underground’s refusal to negotiate on new rosters that would mean they could have to work an unlimited number of weekend and night shifts for no extra pay.
