It’s an unspoken law that whenever we see a travelator, we have to get on it. The ability to walk slightly faster than normal is usually too good an opportunity to pass up.
Now, some forward-thinking go-getters at architecture firm NBBJ have announced their plans to build a three-speed travelator to replace London Underground’s Circle Line. The plans are in response to a think tank’s challenge to come up with ways to make living in London easier. Apparently nobody came up with the idea of just moving the fuck out of London.
Aside from being quicker than the tube, the travelator would have the added benefit of being healthier than sitting in a stagnant carriage ferrying the walking dead through London’s underbelly.
While it’s unlikely the plans will ever come to fruition, it’s still a pretty inventive way of solving London’s commuter crisis. Way to go, architecture!
