With regards to annual number of customers, Tokyo has the largest number of passengers,with nearly 2 billion passengers using the system every year. Paris is the second busiest system with nearly 1.2 billion customers per year. Despite their half route length, both cities serve far more people than the London underground, which has only 775 million passengers a year. Washington DC underground railway system serves around 126 million per year. However, Kyoto's and Los Angeles's systems have the least number of travelers, serving only 45 and 50 million people per year respectively.
What is the London underground railway system called?
The Moscow Metro is one of the world's busiest underground railway systems, and also one of the most extensive. However, the network is now under severe strain as nine million passengers use the 325.4km system every day, and there is an urgent need to reduce the amount of passengers at city centre interchanges, and on the current ring line.
It can be clearly seen that the first and longest underground railway system was recorded by Londoners whereas the largest number of passengers occurred in Tokyo.However, although London was first to build underground railway system people were counted to have the biggest amount in Tokyo(1927 million passengers per year) comparing with mentioned cities. The figures for France recorded 1191 million of passengers after Tokyo whereas the smallest amount was stated in Kyoto(45 million passenger in a year) which meant 5 million less passenger than Los Angeles As regards the figures on the table, it was first in London that underground was constructed in 1863 while France used subway system in 1990. Then the construction of underground railway system spreaded through Tokyo(1927), Washington DC(1976) Kyoto(1981) and Los Angeles(2001)This demonstration took place at Euston Station, London working with Industry partner London Underground. Railway tunnels are reliable structures with relatively low maintenance requirements but some problems do occur and can be challenging to treat. Ground water seepage is the most common concern in many underground railway systems. This can be a particular issue in older tunnels not built to modern waterproofing standards. Uncontrolled seepage can result in a variety of condition problems including:
