The map is an official one, so unless he made it, he didn't include (or exclude, for that matter) anything.
I was just wondering: what's that 'Cross River Transit' supposed to be? A new Tube line (would come close to the CR2 proposed alignment), or light rail?

Cross-River transit is just a tramline running from North to South London, crossing Waterloo Bridge.

BenL, as for whats happening we know that these are:

Under Construction

* East London Line (phase 1)

* DLR Extension (to Woolwich Arsenal)

* Picadilly Line Extension (to Heathrow T5)

* Heathrow Express Extension (to Heathrow T5) <- not on the map as its overground.

* Channel Tunnel High Speed Link (St. Pancras - Stratford - Ebbsfleet) <- not on the map as its overground.

Planned Lines - Good News

* Crossrail seems likely, as it has big backing from the mayor and businesses. 2008 is the most recent start date I've heard.

* DLR Stratford International Extension is almost certain, for the Olympics 2012.

* East London Line (phase 2) is likely.

Planned Lines - Bad News

* Croydon Tramlink extension is unlikely.

* Greenwich Waterfront Transit will happen, but in the form of high-tech buses instead of trams.

* Conservative appointed in Ealing in the last local elections, and one of his pledges was to stop the West London Tramlink from going through Ealing.

@SE9: could you tell me more about that Camden-Stockwell link? Looks interesting.. is it proper underground? I've never seen that extension before, where was it mentioned?

Edit: never mind, found it: Cross River Tram

This is a commuter rail line known as FrontRunner that's under construction along the Wasatch Front from Salt Lake City, Utah to Pleasant View, Utah (just north of Ogden). It is expected to be completed by 2008. These are two rather shitty maps from the official website...




There's also a light rail system known as TRAX that has several proposed expansions (including 1 that's already been approved). However, there are no freaking expansion maps on the official website! Of any of the proposed lines. There's another place I could find maps for these expansions, but for some reason PDF files are not opening on my computer (even though I have Adobe Acrobat).

I don't have any mapmaking skills, so I can't create a map of my own (and I don't know exactly where they're supposed to go anyway). This is the best I can come up with...I wish I could post TRAX expansion maps, but alas, the Internet hates me at the moment.

Is that an official map from Metro or is it done by a civilian?

This is just some weird fantasy idea I had for Paris - it's more 'fantasy' than 'future'. It includes an extension of line 11 via the Île de la Cité (could be with a station right next to the Notre Dame) southwards, to provide métro service to a part of Paris that's poorly served by the network today. Having reached the Université station @ RER B, it continues westwards towards Blvd. Victor station.
The other line is a new one: ligne 15, which would form an inner semi-circle connecting the Gares of Lyon, Austerlitz and Montparnasse with Étoile.

Beijing is definitely preparing for the olympics in 2008. but last year they were still using tickets right? Are they going to use a magnetic card or smartcard by 2008?
