The Risk

Going underground was once cutting edge, cool, logical, an investment worth making. When the surface level is crowded you can make more space by digging down.

The enthusiasm to tunnel and the passion to improve and preserve subways for pedestrians has faded in London as fashion has turned against it and people cannot see beyond the dilapidation and inadequate signage that blights some of them, even if it costs pedestrians dearly with slower journeys and more risk of of road traffic collision.

In other places subways are also places of trouble and hope. We list a few places here:
