A NEW map of the London Underground has revealed the hottest spots for commuters. The diagram, which covers most of the Tube lines in zones one and two, was compiled by Transport for London to help identify areas with particularly high temperatures in the collected on the hottest day of last year -- 28 July. Most of the s t a t i o n s s u r v e y e d h a d temperatures above 30C. Even the coolest stations had tempera- tures around 25C. TfL said it was working hard to find a solution but admitted it was at a disadvantage because there was no concept of air conditioning when construction began on the tunnels in 1860.
