Will moving sidewalks replace the London Underground?On 2016-11-02 by Vivan Austin
Circle Line is one of the London Underground lines, traditionally marked in yellow. Its name derives from the fact that in 1949-2009 trains rode on it in continuous motion, looping. Nowadays, it is not the most effective solution for transporting people, so the architects of NBBJ have come up with something more functional.
Currently, Circle Line is simultaneously operated by eight warehouses that travel at relatively low speeds of around 30 km / h on average. At peak times it is extremely crowded, which results in delays, not to mention the low comfort for crowded passenger cars.
NBBJ architects think they have found a better solution and would like to replace subway cars, moving sidewalks. Their vision of the transport system would be moving at speeds of up to 5 to 24 km / h, so if we were hurrying, we could use faster sidewalks, and in order to admire the city we would have to use slower versions.
The creators of this project also say that near the sidewalks could be placed many different advertisements, which would finance the cost of their operation, and at any time the traveler would be able to descend from this pavement.
