Standing in the rush hour: London tube stops commuters walking on escalators

A new standing-only escalator rule at Holborn tube station has left Londoners questioning everything they know about life.

In a devastating blow to speedy walkers, the terminally late and anyone who doesn’t fancy looking at poster ads for West End shows for two minutes every day, the busy zone 1 station is stopping commuters from walking on moving escalators.

TfL says it is breaking its own decades-long practice of asking people to stand to one side to let people pass, as part of a three-week trial to “increase the capacity” and prevent “queuing at the bottom” of escalators.

そして両側立ちがOKになったとか、、、。

これは微妙ですね。

急いでいる方にとっては迷惑な話で、人をかき分けて前へ進むのは困難です。

逆に考えると、両側歩きもOKなのかなと疑問におもいますね。

これをうけてTwitterでは早くも反発のこえ!?

↓こんな反発の声!

Can happily report nobody was listening to announcements re #Holborn experiment of not walking on escalators!

Amazing scenes at Holborn as staff try to get people to stand on both sides of the escalator. Nu-uh, no way

At the bottom of one of the “up” escalators, two members of staff with megaphones shouting “stand on *both* sides of this escalator”.

ホルボーンは大英博物館の最寄りの駅なので観光者の方もよく利用すると思いますので、

エレベーター利用はご注意くださいね!
