Shanghai vs London ~ Battle of the Metro Tubes!

Fascinating piece at Bricoleurbanism on Shanghai’s Metro and London’s Tube Head to Head...
"Now that Shanghai’s Metro is officially the longest subway network in the world (by track length), [it's] interesting to do a comparison between it and the long-time title holder that it displaced, London’s Underground. [...] The shocking thing about the 2020 expansion plan is that it will make the [below] diagram (created by Kzaral aka FML in the style of the famous Tube map) a reality and not a fantasy. All this from a system that only opened its first subway line (appropriately called Line 1) in 1995. Yes, you read that right, 1995"
