London-based creative duo Joe Watson and Aryven Arasen, currently freelancing at WCRS, have seen their walking tube map of London explode online as the 48-hour long London tube strike continues to trouble commuters and travellers in the capital.

Watson and Arasen’s walking tube map shows the walking distance (in minutes) between each stop highlighting to commuters roughly how long it will take them to walk from station to station.

In addition to providing a guide on how long a journey is likely to take on foot, the map also lists famous London landmarks that would be otherwise missed travelling underground.
To help keep London moving even more the pair have also created a number of infographics for the closed lines, such as the Victoria line and the Circle line, to help ease the burden of those who are without even a skeleton service. So far the map and infographics have appeared on the Independent’s website, Buzzfeed and In light of the strike action several charities have also used today’s disruption to draw attention to their causes with Macmillan hi-jacking the #tubestrike hashtag and Save the Children suggesting that even though the strike will end on Thursday ‘No-one knows when the disruption in Syria will end’.
