This Is What The Tube Map Could Look Like In 2040

With TfL's network aggressively expanding, the tube map is going to change with it. So Redditor u/Not_Quite_Vertical has helpfully made a tube map showing what the future may look like.

It's an unofficial tube map from 2040 and is an absolute beauty.

Ways in which this tube map is different from our current one are as follows:

It's also interesting to note what hasn't been included on the map. Most notable is the Croxley Rail Link, but it's rather unlikely that's happening anymore, so that's a good call. Also missing is the DLR Extension down to Thamesmead, which we have slightly more faith in becoming a reality.

Also missing are the many suburban rail routes that TfL would love to get its hands on, though as long as Chris Grayling is transport secretary, that's unlikely to happen.

If there's anything else on the map that we've missed please let us know down in the comments.
