Do you think London needs a night tube?

PUBLISHED: 15:16 07 August 2015 | UPDATED: 15:13 11 September 2015

In the past month, tube drivers have twice walked out over pay and night tube working conditions, a strike which has shut down the entire network and caused disruption for millions of passengers.

With no resolution in sight and commuters braced for the possiblity of a third strike, we ask you to have your say on the introduction of the night tube.

Yesterday RMT union called for an “immediate and indefinite suspension of the Mayor’s Night Tube vanity project”, currently due to start on September 12.

Meanwhile Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, indicated the start date for the night tube could be postponed – a concession that may allow time for negotiations to avert further strikes.

“I want it starting in the autumn – what I am fussed about is the offer being put to union members,” said Mr Johnson, adding: “I am not going to authorise any more money. Most people would recognise that this is a very generous deal.”
