How about arriving one morning at your usual bus stop and finding that it is made of blocks of LEGO? This is precisely what has happened to all those who usually wait for the bus on Regent Street, in the city of London. This is an initiative launched by the institution that regulates transport in the English capital.
Surprising as it may seem, all parts of the new stop, including the seats, the glass panels and the lettering, are made up of more than 100,000 pieces. Funny thing is where is this surprise stop. Do you want to discover it?
In front of a toy store
The new London bus stop is located in front of a toy store. But do not think that this is an ordinary toy store, but we are talking about the mythical Hamley’s from Regent Street.
The Year of the Bus
The objective of this curious initiative is celebrate the 200th anniversary of the city's buses, in what has been called the Year of the Bus. In addition, it marks 60 years of the classic double-decker Routemaster and 100 years of the world's first mass-produced bus, the Battle Bus, which brought soldiers in front during World War I.
Only until July 19
The pity is that the new stop will not be permanent, but will be on Regent Street for a month (until July 15). Then it will be replaced by a structure conventional. Transport for London, the institution that regulates transport in London, has collaborated in this fun project; Trueform, a company specialized in station design; and Duncan Titmarcs, the official LEGO builder in Great Britain.
