London tube too hot to handle?

Posted 24 August 2009 13:49 by martin


Transport for London has released this 'heat' map of Underground lines in zones one and two between 1600 and 1900 on 28/29 July 2008 – the hottest day of the year.

So on parts of the Central, Bakerloo and Victoria lines in particular you were being gently baked.  And that's the average during those hours – it will have peaked at more than that.  Apparently this is also the platform temperature, so imagine the on-train temp when everyone was crammed in at rush hour.

Doesn't really bear thinking about.

Our response?  Too obvious to state…
