The Tube Map of the Future Looks Like a Colourful, Squiggly Mess

By Gerald Lynch on at

The London Underground map is a thing of beauty, making sense out of the chaos that is the capital's complicated transit system. But there's only so much that it can take -- with new stations, two Crossrail lines and high speed connections to the North all being built or planned, the classic map looks like it's about to buckle under the strain.

As Brian Butterworth of shows with this future-gazing map that takes in all of the projected upgrades, planning a public transport journey around the capital by the middle of the century may be quite a headache. It's a good thing we'll all have personal jetpacks by that point, then. [ via Time Out]
