It may come as no surprise to regular passengers on the London Underground’s Circle Line that a moving walkway would get them to their destination in less time.
An architecture firm has designed just that: a travelator to replace the 17-mile circuit of trains.
Architects at NBBJ said they came up with the travelator in response to a challenge by a think tank to invent something to improve daily life in London.
They said the travelator would not only improve journey times and increase the number of people able to travel on the line but has an added health benefit for commuters.
(ed:..why don’t we do this with our proposed circle-line..?
..would it be cheaper..?..)
