Circle Line To Be Extended To Hammersmith

0603_circle.jpg A press release from London Underground confirms the long-expected decision to extend the Circle line to Hammersmith from December. It's the end of the line's orbit around the capital; from now on, Circle line trains will begin at Hammersmith, head up to Edgware Road, take one lap around the entire line before terminating at Edgware Road and reversing anti-clockwise back to Hammersmith. The changes will increase capacity across the Circle, District and H&C lines, reduce delays, allow defective trains to be easier recovered, and should mean the end of both the distressing "next Circle line train in 16 minutes" announcements and the bacchanalian Antipodean awfulness of the CL pub crawl. Let's just hope our favourite freesheet doesn't get confused again.(Image / See Wah)
