Tube strike: Walking map shows distance between stations ahead of planned 2016 walkout

Transport for London’s ‘walk the Tube’ map shows how long it would take to
walk between stations ahead of a planned February 2016 strike

This is a great way of providing something positive out of a difficult situation. Transport For London understands that with a large number of tourists or people who only know their way around London via the Tube, or don’t know their way around at all. It’s the scale that people don’t understand.

I can relate to that when I decided it would be an easy walk on a stonking hot day from Battery Park to Strawberry Field in Central Park NYC via Chinatown. If it wasn’t the middle of summer it wouldn’t have been a big deal, but I had no idea at all of the scale. I was pretty hot and bothered by the time I finished my journey.

Anyway, if you are going to get caught out by the Tube strike, the map from Transport For London will give you a good idea of what is realistic. 10 out of 10 for a transport authority to try to take some of the pain out of the situation for their customers.
