Is this tube map ‘fairer’ to south London?

Sadiq Khan has been given a run for his money by a young transport fanatic who has created a tube map that is “fairer to south London”.

Fifteen-year-old Felix Dennis’ mum shared the map on Twitter, which has new stops in Bromley, Croydon and Dulwich, as well as an extended Bakerloo line down to Hayes in Kent. 

It also stretches the Elizabeth Line to Gatwick Airport, and expands London’s tram network across the river to secure “north London buy-in”.

Elsewhere, the District line and London Overground extend down to Orpington, while the Jubilee and Northern lines reach to Sutton and Epsom respectively.

The Circle line would expand south to include Wandsworth, Brixton, and Peckham, while the DLR would run to Gravesend.

He even added stops at Thorpe Park and ‘Chessington theme park’ on the outskirts of the capital. 

On Twitter user wrote: “The clash between the child-like wobbly hand-drawnness of the lines, and the very grown-up, plausible awesomeness of the network in south London make this so much fun to stare at.”

Another said: “North London tram/light rail system is a thoroughly solid idea, and there’s a lot of promise in some of those London Underground extensions. I’m particularly fond of his ideas for the Victoria and H&C lines. Treasure that talent.”
