    Organised in what way? There are hubs of activity i.e. Business - Canary wharf, Entertainment - Leicester Square etc. You could say this is organised. The traffic system is a nightmare, so call that disorganised.

    It was those lovely Victorians - have a look out for a book called "Building Jerusalem - the rise and fall of the Victorian City."

    The building of some of the tube lines (district & metropolitan) are directly underneath some of the main highways. Metropolitan boards were responsible for all the utilities and stuff was co-ordinated. (It never used to be like that).

    But it was only because stuff got really bad before then and affected the rich and powerful that they decided to do something about it and spend lots of money procuring the finest minds in the world to come up with solutions.

    I think London is an overcrowded mess, but with a somewhat organised system.




    I also don't make much sense after 9 pm. Sorri.

    Londons transport system is the most organised pile of mess you will ever come across. Over its history there are many times there has been a chance to overhaul the system but in each case NIMBYism ruled so noone benefitted. I think the most recent one was amongst a more organised road network, they were goin to sort out the south circular so is resembled the A406 today. but no, they wernt having that and result - south circulars blocked, and the north circulars blocked.
    The most impressive thing is that even in London there are distinctive rush hours and not a single unending 9 to 5 jam.

    Dude, what are you on about? Sorry, I totally disagree. If you dont know how it works which is hard not to if you ask me then maybe. Once you know how to use the transport system it is. I grant I dont know all transport systems but I'd say it has one of the greatest in the world. It is so much better than places anywhere else in the UK.

    Yes it is very organised. The public transport (despite whining) is stupidly efficient compared to any other UK location. Traffic jams are rife but then again there are quite a lot of barmy Londoners driving into work every day.

    I find it better than New York, for the record.

    I've lived here all my life. I know how it works, there are always delays, most of the lines are closed over the weekends, etc.
