Critics say that once a train is delayed in one of the 27 stations, it automatically has a serious knock-on effect for other trains on the line."
The good news for me as a West Londoner is that under the plans, the Circle Line would also be extended from Edgware Road to Hammersmith - which would increase the number trains from Hammersmith into the City.
A spokesperson from consumer group London TravelWatch said: "The idea is to make the service more efficient and our board is discussing the proposals today.
"We have an open mind at this point as this is the first time we have seen the plans in any detail."
Obviously this is just in planning stage at the moment and it could take some time for the blueprint to come to fruition. Transport for London are expected to make a decision on the plans next year.
