Iconic London Tube map gets fresh look with new colors & names


Recommended Posts

The world of public transportation is abuzz with the latest news from Transport for London. The iconic Tube map is undergoing one of the most significant changes in its history. Six lines of the London Overground, previously represented by a single orange color on the map, are being rebranded with new names and colors.

The six Overground lines, now known as the Lioness, Mildmay, Windrush, Weaver, Suffragette, and Liberty lines, have been named to reflect the unique history and cultural diversity of the areas they traverse. This rebranding is expected to make the network easier to navigate.

 

The Lioness line, marked with yellow parallel lines, honors the England women’s football team. The Mildmay line, represented by blue parallel lines, commemorates the charitable hospital in Shoreditch that played a crucial role during the HIV/Aids crisis in the 1980s. The Windrush line, marked with red parallel lines, pays tribute to the Windrush community, running through areas with strong ties to Caribbean communities.

 

The Weaver line, marked with maroon parallel lines, travels through areas of London known for their importance in the textile trade. The Suffragette line, represented by green parallel lines, celebrates the East End working-class community’s fight for women’s rights. Finally, the Liberty line, marked with grey parallel lines, references the historical independence of the people of the borough of Havering.

 

This rebranding is more than just a cosmetic change. It’s a celebration of London’s rich history and cultural diversity, making the city’s public transport network a reflection of the community it serves. What are your thoughts on this significant change? Do you think the new names and colors will make the Tube map easier to navigate? We’d love to hear your views.
