But, never fear, there are two very handy maps that will help you work out how far exactly that walk to the next station (or maybe the one after too) is if your journey gets cut short because of the strikes.

One presents how long it will take and the other shows how many steps (useful if you're trying to hit those 10k per day as part of a New Year regime).
