The portion of London's underground system known as the Circle Line could possibly receive an entirely new design thanks to architecture firm NBBJ that is hoping to transform the space into something much more functional and high-speed. The concept involves transforming the Circle Line loop with a set of movable sidewalk lanes to help improve rush hour traffic.

Travelling by public transit can be a nightmare, especially during peak times when hundreds of thousands of people are crowding onto the train cars. NBBJ is hoping to help streamline this moments of high traffic with three new sidewalk lanes that are continuously moving. The lanes will be differed up to accommodate two feeder lanes and a higher speed 15-mph lane in the middle. Whether the concept will become reality is yet to be seen, but it offers a new perspective to a continuous issue.
