London Underground’s 150th anniversary
You would be amazed to know that London underground is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year which is a big achievement. Most importantly, a lot of its stations have been modernized and now they are running on the latest system and technology. There are currently a total of 66 tube stations including “victoria station London” that is being upgraded. Some of the most common names include, King’s Cross pancreas, Green Park, Earis Court, Farringdon, Blackfriars, and Wembley Central.
This is what Glenn Keelan who is Programme Manager of this upgrade process has to say;
“Given that the station currently deals with more than 82 million passenger journeys each year, upgrading Victoria Underground is a vital part of improving the Tube network which will ensure the station can cope with future demand, cut congestion, and improve access for all our passengers using the station”.
“This will be a huge benefit to residents, commuters, and tourists, who will find it quicker and easier to enter, interchange with other modes, or exit the station. In addition, those arriving on the Victoria line who want to exit and continue their journey north of Victoria Street can utilize the new North Ticket Hall route and avoid the busy road junctions above.”
There is no doubt that in coming times, the victoria station London will be considered as the role model for underground train stations all over the world.
