Want to get to work on time? Well tough, you can't.

Unless two upcoming 48-hour Tube strikes are called off, this is the pathetic service you can expect to be running from 9pm this evening until Friday morning.

The map, which was created by a blogger and is presented as a rough, rather than official guide, is intended to help stranded commuters plan their marathon quests commutes to work during the strikes coordinated by members of the RMT and TSSA unions.

"Despite two poorly-supported ballots for industrial action, which saw only around 30 per cent of RMT and TSSA members balloted voting for strike action, and around 70 per cent either not voting or voting no, the union leaderships have nonetheless instructed their members to carry out four days of strike action in February," Transport for London have confirmed.

Two 48-hour strikes have been called at London Underground which will affect services from around 9.30pm on Tuesday 4 February until the morning of Friday 7 February; and, around 9.30pm on Tuesday 11 February until the morning of Friday 14 February.

Boris Johnson has waged war on trade union leaders ahead of the crippling tube strikes that could bring London to a standstill.

The mayor said it was "absolutely outrageous" that London was being "held to ransom" and mocked union baron Bob Crow.

But union leaders are furious that London Mayor Boris Johnson pledged to keep ticket offices open at Underground stations - but has now broken that election promise.
