Transport for London (TfL) has announced that it has added six new individual lines to the city’s famous transit network.

The underground’s sister overground system connects suburban areas outside the English capital with the city centre.

Now, the new lines will be given individual names and colours. Until now, the lines have all shared the colour orange.

The new lines are the Lioness line, the Mildmay line, the Windrush line, the Weaver line, the Suffragette line and the Liberty line.

According to TfL, the rebranding exercise won’t come cheap as it’ll cost 6.3 million pounds.

The Lioness line has been named after the England women’s football team who won the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament at Wembley Stadium. The team was nicknamed the Lionesses.

The Windrush line runs through several Caribbean communities and the line is named the Windrush Generation. The line is named after the ship that first brought Caribbean migrants to the United Kingdom.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said the initiative will encourage people to learn about the city’s history.

“Naming the lines will not only help educate visitors about our amazing city and its incredible history but will also make it easier for people who live, work or visit London to navigate the city.”
