Visual journeyplanner for London

I love it when good ideas get implemented: The TubeJP combines Google Maps with data from Transport for London and returns a visual route plan. Still some work to do, but a big step in the right direction. (When Google Maps UK first came out, it was one of my main criticisms that it used US average road speeds by default: everyone knows average speed driving through London is snail and most Londoners use public transport).

TubeJP includes tubes, buses, the DLR and live traffic news. Still needed: search to/from postcodes and the advanced search functions of the official journeyplanner (which are amazingly powerful: e.g. set your walking preference, 'i'll walk if it's quicker', your walking speed, preference for this or that medium of transport, preference for speed or minimum changes etc etc)
