Stickers on the Central Line


Tottenham Court Road station has a good heart, nevertheless over time it has been overcome by the stampedes of tourists passing through. Sadly, there are not enough charitable organisations to offer the support these traumatised stations need. As a result Tottenham Court Road has taken it upon itself to reduce traffic and at the same time generate some pocket money.

During quieter hours on the 7th day of each month, a 3.5 minute rave is held between Woodford and Buckhurst Hill. If you’re quick there’s just time to down a pint and dance to a song. Unfortunately since Boris Johnson decided to ban alcohol on the tube, such raves have been pushed underground.

London is one of the world’s leading tourist destinations, attracting almost 15 million international visitors per year, making it  the world’s most visited city in terms of international visits. The Government Office for London states that tourism revenues constitute 10% of London’s gross value, therefore have decided to translate station names for the benefit of foreign visitors. Mind you, only 10% of them.

As the Westfield Mall complex in the small area of Shepherd’s Bush grows in popularity, changes are required to deal with the ever increasing influx of shoppers. Many find it hard to navigate themselves through leafy Shepherd’s Bush, the many quaint stalls in the market and the independent, family run restaurants that proliferate in this area. As a result, Shepherd’s Bush station has been renamed Westfield Mall station with the exit relocated inside the Debenhams flagship store.

Controversial new measures were introduced by Prime Minister David Cameron today in a bid to heal Britain’s “broken society”, which saw TFL opt for a one in, one out policy into Zone 1 to enforce the government’s new “radical social reform”.
"It’s dealing with the issues of family breakdown, welfare dependency,  failing schools, crime, and the problems that we see in too many of our  communities."
For the majority of us it will mean increased travel times and document checks all in the interest of  “Cameronomics”.

Every once in a while, the little people that look after the central line maps pop out for some maintenance work, and if you’re quiet enough you might just catch a glimpse of them at work…

The marriage of Kate Middleton and William Windsor was commemorated  by Transport for London when the new Royal Line was opened by Mohamed  El-Fayed. The line will connect Buckingham Palace with Primark, Oxford  Street for the first time, allowing the Queen access to her favourite  boutique.
It should also be noted that seatbelts must be worn at all times on the Royal Line.
