Responding to reports that the Night Tube will be delayed until at least 2016, Labour’s London Assembly Transport Spokesperson, Val Shawcross AM, said:
“Boris Johnson’s failure to deliver the Night Tube to schedule will come as a major disappointment to businesses and Londoners who hoped that the service would be running by Christmas. The Mayor’s perpetual dithering over the project and his inability to bring the dispute with the unions to a close has meant the advent of the Night Tube is becoming an increasingly distant prospect.
“The Mayor was eager to announce the Night Tube, but was clearly less eager to do the work to ensure he could fulfil his promise to Londoners and deliver to schedule. Once again Boris Johnson has proven to be all show and no substance.”
