London Underground – What took you so long?

“I can assure passengers who will use them that we hope, rather than arriving at their destinations drenched in perspiration, they will emerge cool as cucumbers and ready to enjoy all that the capital offers,” Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

Transport for London, has announced that it is starting to roll out new Air-Conditioned Underground trains starting with the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines from 2010. The plan being to replace all the trains in the system by 2015. You would have thought they would have it done by 2012. I can’t for the life of me remember what is happening then, but I think it may be something big for London.

Also improvements to the Circle, District, & Hammersmith & City lines are planned at the same time. At the moment I have to say thats a good thing, seen as the last 2 weeks each time I have touched the Circle and District lines there have been delays, or stoppages somewhere.
