When it was first built, workers dug large trenches through the streets, reinforced them, put roofs on them and then rebuilt the street surface on top. Did this impact traffic? Yes, badly. Did it work? Yes. The first year it was opened, the London Underground carried more than 9 million passengers when only a few million people lived in London at the time.
