The London Underground map has been updated and redrawn to show the new direct services to and from central London on the Elizabeth line. 

It comes as the interchange at Paddington has officially opened, seeing the western part of the line now run through to Abbey Wood without passengers having to change from the mainline station. 

The newest line on the tube service is represented by a white line with two purple borders on the map.

Along with showing all the routes that the Elizabeth line has to offer including its simplified journeys to Liverpool Street. 

The map also shows the recently opened Bond Street Elizabeth line station that opened at the end of October. 

Plus the update adds the name of the new sponsor of the London cable car, IFS Cloud after the re-branding over the summer. 

Updated London Underground map draws criticism as some brand it "Pube Map"

However, not everyone has shared their love for the new map, as some criticise the pocket-size paper version cover artwork, with some naming it the "Pube Map."

The new design was created by London-based South Korean artist Do Ho Suh who overlaid threads on the Tube Map. 

The added feature was to "trace familiar routes embroidery" whilst showing that not all follow the most rational routes. 

But some enthusiasts of the train service are claiming the work called Routes/Roots: London looks more like "drain hair". 

Speaking of the cover, Suh said: "For over a decade, I have put my roots down in London and made it my home, both of my children were born here, so it is a privilege to work on TfL’s iconic Tube map.

“At heart, so much of my work is about the transportability of space, about what we carry with us as we move through the world, so I’ve loved working on an actual map and thinking about the gaps between the locations and complicating the neatness of the lines.”

Whilst head of Art on the Underground Elenor Pinfield said: "Do Ho Suh’s new artwork centres on the part of London he travels most regularly, and in doing so, we delve into the personal stories of this mass-transit system.

“The curling threads that trail from each station envisage our commutes as swooping flows of colour, capturing the poetic nature of the quotidian journey.”
