People with claustrophobia or other anxiety conditions could find their journeys less stressful as Transport for London (TfL) recently launched a new map that shows which stations and sections of the TfL network are underground.
The new addition to TfL’s broad selection of downloadable Tube maps will help a range of their customers navigate the network more comfortably by showing them routes they can take to avoid areas with large stretches of tunnels.
There are 270 stations on the Tube network, but more than half are actually above ground, with the Victoria and Waterloo and City lines being the only lines that are wholly underground. In the new design, parts of the lines on Harry Beck’s iconic map have been given a grey overlay to illustrate which stations or sections of track are underground. The new map also shows which London Overground, DLR and TfL Rail services are in tunnels.
