London ride bosses have suggested for a initial time how prolonged it takes to travel between Tube stations with a new map giving a stretch between any stop on a network.

The map, that covers Zones 1 and 2, replicates a customary Tube devise though adding a series between any span of stations that are subsequent to any other on a same line.

It could have a enigmatic outcome of enlivening people not to use Transport for London services – though officials contend they wish people to travel rather than take ultra-short Tube journeys.

The map was combined after a series of similar, unaccepted images were done by Tube enthusiasts and gained recognition among commuters.

A orator told a Evening Standard: ‘What we have seen is that people are unfortunate for this arrange of thing, so we have combined it. We focused on executive London, Zones 1 and 2, and formed a times of a tour planner.’

The map vividly shows howin a City and a West End, some stations are so tighten together that it would substantially be quicker to travel between them than take a Tube.

For example, it takes usually 4 mins to travel from Leicester Square to Covent Garden, or Cannon Street to Mansion House, while there are usually 3 mins between Charing Cross and Embankment – that used to be a singular station.

By contrast, it takes some-more than half an hour to travel between Bethnal Green and Liverpool Street, or King’s Cross St Pancras and Highbury Islington.

Some commentators have used a explanation of a map to disagree for a construction of new Tube stations in areas where there is an scarcely vast stretch between stops.

Despite a intensity detriment of a revenue, TfL encourages travellers – generally tourists, who might be reduction informed with London’s embankment – to travel rather than take brief Tube journeys.

Gordon Innes of London Partners, that promotes a collateral on interest of Mayor Boris Johnson, pronounced today: ‘The new Walking Tube map is a good new apparatus for visitors to London.

‘Although a Tube is a many used ride process by visitors in London, stations for many of a tip attractions are within walking stretch of any other.

‘Walking from a hum of Leicester Square to a markets of Covent Garden takes usually 4 minutes, though many tourists make a longer tour by Tube.’

Earlier this year, a tip TfL map that shows Tube lines on a picturesque devise of London came to light for a initial time.
