A leading design firm has put forward plans to make London safer and less congested for cyclists by transforming disused Tube tunnels.
Gensler has come up with an award-winning plan to turn the routes into subterranean cycleways and pedestrian routes.
The scheme, dubbed the "London Underline" project, has now been recognised at the London Planning Awards where it was named Best Conceptual Project last month.
Its designers say it would transform tunnels beneath the capital into vibrant subterranean streets, with shopping facilities, cafes and pedestrian paths running parallel with cycle routes.
The tunnels would be accessed via Underground stations. They would be surfaced by kinetic paving at stations, which would use footfall to generate energy, according to Gensler.
