The launch of the night tube might be getting delayed

Isabelle Aron

We've been counting down the days until the tube finally goes 24-hour at weekends, but now it looks like we might have to wait a little longer. The long-awaited night tube is meant to be launching in just over a month on September 12, but unless you've been living in a Central line tunnel for the last few weeks, you'll probably be aware that tube workers have been striking over disputes on pay and conditions for the new service. We're now two strikes down, but TfL is still negotiating with the four unions – RMT, TSSA, Unite and ASLEF. The chief operating officer of London Underground says they are 'operationally ready' to go ahead on September 12, but that they aren't prepared to do it 'at any cost'. We're crossing our fingers that it all gets resolved, but until then, it looks like we'll have to stick it out on the night bus – or just squander all our wages on Uber.
