Remember when there was a 24-hour tube strike about a month ago? Apparently it didn't resolve anything, because guess what – it's about to happen all over again. From 6.30pm tomorrow (August 5) the tube will completely shut up shop for 24 hours, although TfL has warned that services won't resume properly until Friday. The post-work tube strike means that people will probably be flocking from their desks a bit earlier than usual, so expect the tube to be pretty manic from about 4.30pm tomorrow. Like last month's strike, the dispute is over pay and conditions for the night tube, which is scheduled to kick off on September 12.
The DLR, London Overground, tram, buses and TfL Rail services will be running as normal, but you can expect them to be pretty jam-packed. There's not much in the way of good news, but TfL will be putting on 250 extra buses and adding extra Boris Bike hubs to try and ease your transport pain. See you in the queue for the bus.
If panic is already setting in, take a deep breath and read our ultimate guide to surviving the tube strike.
