“Mapping London’s Transport”
by John Dodd.
Underground, Bus, Green Line Coach, Tram and Main Line Suburban - all these modes are covered in John Dodd’s survey of London’s public transport maps from 1900 to 1950, which is the most fascinating period for map design. Mr. Dodd will offer his observations on a selection of London Underground, Tram and Bus Maps from the London Transport Museum’s collection, including a fair few not covered by his survey. The main theme will be mapping the various ‘circle lines’, with ‘early tram’ and ‘iffy’ bus maps as additional topics.

“Bank/Monument Stations Upgrade”
with Viki James, Project Manager for Consents & Properties, London Underground Bank SCU Project.
The Bank/Monument stations complex forms the fourth busiest interchange on the London Underground network. TfL propose to substantially upgrade the capacity of Bank station by providing a new southbound tunnel and platform for the Northern line, a new station entrance on Cannon Street, step-free access between the Northern line, DLR and the street; a moving walkway, more lifts and escalators all to improve accessibility and relieve congestion. How will this be carried out? Ms James will explain all.
