Lord Toby Harris believes that Boris Johnson should consider installing slides in place of escalators to improve the flow of passengers through busy London Underground stations.
A prototype has already been tried out in Berlin and proved popular.
Lord Harris notes the e-petition for the slides in London states that “Small prizes should be available for those reaching the bottom in the fastest time. These would be paid for out of the savings of not having to maintain and operate down escalators.”
