Unused London Metro Lines May Be Converted into Subterranean Bike Paths
Rising populations call for the transformation of the capital's disused parts of the Tube
London’s population is anticipated to reach 10 million by 2029, that’s an increase of over 2 million people as of 2013. This influx of citizens directly affects the transport system as there are also expected to be 400 percent more cyclists by the year 2025. Now, design firm Gensler aims to combat this problem with The London Underline project, which recently won the award for Best Conceptual Project at the London Planning Awards, hosted by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
