History of the world's first subway
For the first time, the idea of ​​taking the trains from the underground was proposed by Charles Pearson, the lawyer of the City of London in 1845. When it is considered that the first steam train in public transport is used in 1830 in the UK, it can be said that it is a very early time for the same service to be given underground.
Pearson, who initially reacted to his ideas, succeeded in getting the metro project ar trains from water channels diye to the House of Commons at 1853. Finally the construction of the world's first subway line began in March of 1860 in London. The 'Metropolitan Railway' between Paddington and Farringdon Street, the world's first subway, was opened in 10 January 1863.
It is known that subway engineers started excavations under the ground by starting from the system of progression of bedbugs and formed the metro line by supporting the continuous side walls and ceilings of small and simple tunnels.
Today, the London Metro, which has a total length of 402 kilometers, serves with the 270 station. With approximately 10 million pounds of advanced drilling machines, new stations are opened almost every year and the metro lines are extended according to the speed of development of the city.
