The Piccadilly Line Night Tube is set to launch amidst timetable uncertainty despite heavy criticism from passengers about ongoing repair works.
Transport for London (TfL) said the 24-hour service is still due to roll out on Friday (December 16) and run all night on Fridays and Saturdays, despite repairs being carried out on the wheels.
A London Underground source told getwestlondon: "At the moment, the Night Tube will be going ahead.
"We're not entirely sure yet as to how the timetable will work, we have improvements on the line each day.
"We can't say for sure but as it stands, it's still launching as expected."
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, also confirmed it will go ahead as planned.
The Mayor declared "TfL have proven that commuters get a more frequent, reliable and affordable service", amidst Piccadilly line chaos.
Social media users retorted: "What about the Picc line, is that a better deal for customers?"
Angry commuters vent about Night Tube after hellish Piccadilly line journeys
The network has been heavily criticised by commuters since November after the entire fleet was pulled off tracks to carry out emergency repair works to the "flatted" wheels.
Heavy delays have been coupled with Southern Rail strikes which has doubled the strain for those relying on public transport .
Angry commuters tweeted their frustration, with one saying it was "hilarious because it can't even cope with the day service".
Others echoed the sentiment, slamming the service for creating a "dreadful" journey for people.
RMT Union general secretary, Mick Cash, warned the Night Tube needed to be delayed , with the 43-year-old trains requiring proper examination.
He said: "The problem is flatted wheels , which mean the train has to come off the road for a chunk of time to have the wheel checked and lathed back to safe tolerances.
"But now the sheer danger of massive delays and overcrowding means that the service on the Piccadilly line is inherently unsafe and will get worse under Night Tube."
Night Tube: What and where on the Piccadilly Line will change?
There will be a train about every 10 minutes between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5, excluding Terminal 4.
Standard off-peak fares will be charged and Day Travelcards cover journeys made until 4.29am the next day.
TfL has extended some bus services to help meet increased demand for customers travelling to and from Night Tube stations.
The Night Tube is already running on the entire Victoria and Jubilee lines and most of the Central line.
