LONDON (AP) — London’s iconic underground train map is getting a major update. The city’s mayor has announced a plan to rename the suburban rail network into six new lines. They will all have new colors too. The hope is that the rebranding of the London Overground, which currently is shown as an orange line, will make travel in the capital easier. Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan said Thursday that in re-imagining the map, “we are also honoring and celebrating different parts of London’s unique local history and culture.” Transport for London expects the full rebranding to be completed by the end of the year.
