Priorities for Transport in a Growing London

priorities for transport banner

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) sets out London’s transport needs over coming decades, with consideration for housing, public health and economic development. The MTS also details Transport for London’s (TfL’s) delivery priorities and proposed funding mechanisms, providing a framework for boroughs and other delivery partners.

Ahead of a new MTS in autumn 2017, Future of London and TfL, with support from Arup, developed the Priorities for Transport in a Growing London series. Taking place in November and December 2016, three events brought together expert speakers and cross-sector workshop participants to look at London’s emerging transport priorities and how the MTS can deliver them.

The sessions were themed, exploring transport and the growth agenda, major infrastructure and local projects. Recucrring themes – explained in the project summary  below – included transport’s role in unlocking housing and employment, links between transport and public health, finance and delivery strategies, and opportunities and challenges for boroughs.
