The Financial Times (UK) runs a story on The Old London Underground Company

Mr Chambers, who will put his case to the Mayor in September, is optimistic. “I have a feasibility team ready to go in. All we need is a green light from Boris.” he says.

Similar projects abroad have proved successful. For example, Xiuli Hawken, ranked 61st in the Sunday Times rich list, made her money by turning Chinese air-raid shelters into underground shopping centres. Professor Tony Travers, of the London School of Economics, says ''other countries make much more of their abandoned transport infrastructure than we do, City Hall seems to find it hard to bend TfL to its will.''
