Are you ready to see the depths of the capital city of England? Transport for London (TfL) and Google have come together to make the announcement of this new glorious decision. It will start with Google Street View at 30 underground stations in London, according to a report by Sky News. There will be cameras installed at different corners to click 360° pictures of the underground glory of all these stations.

Transport for London (TfL) and Google have joined hands to start this new journey of making London underground stations available in the Google Street View. Locals and tourists have kept a look at the whereabouts and status of roads using such systems all this time. And soon, they will get the chance to do the same with the bustling and busy tube stations as well.

Some of the stations that are coming up on Google Street View next year are Waterloo, Green Park, Liverpool Street, Custom House, Baker Street, and Oxford Circus. Without any doubt, this system is surely going to help commuters get to know about the station layouts and updates of the tube stations and also plan their commute accordingly.

The plan of Google is to start clicking the images during the next few weeks, according to a report by MyLondon. A fascinating detail of the project is that the tech company will use an interesting blurring technology for privacy reasons. Another advantage of this technology is to change people’s faces in the pictures and then upload them on online platforms.

This innovative start is all set to make the travel journeys on underground tubes easier and a lot more accessible for the commuters; be it locals or tourists. A specific time has been dedicated to filming inside the tube stations. The duration for this is from 10 AM to 4 PM, according to a report by CityLife. The peak hours see a major crowd at the stations and the time has been specified in such a way that it does not coincide with the peak time.
