New TfL map shows how long it can take to walk between local stations
TfL has launched two extended versions of its Walking Tube map to help those travelling outside of central London.
The maps include Zone 3 stations for the first time with estimated walking time and steps between stations, so more South West London stops are included.
They now also include National Rail stations - giving people more opportunity to save time by taking everyday journeys on foot. The maps are available for download.
You can see a snapshot of it on the right - revealing, for example, that it's just a 19 minute walk between Wimbledon Park and Southfields.
A recent TfL study shows that Londoners make 3.6 million daily journeys by car, motorcycle, taxi or public transport that could be walked, at least in part.
Deputy Mayor for Transport, Val Shawcross said: “We are committed to improving the health and quality of life for all Londoners, and know that this can happen if we create a cleaner, better environment where people want to walk and cycle. By improving our streets to encourage active travel, we can reduce the impact of transport on our environment - leading to cleaner air and a greener, quieter and less traffic dominated city for all to enjoy.”
