Next steps for the Mayor’s Transport Strategy - ‘Healthy Streets’, passenger experience and economic growth

Morning, Thursday, 26th April 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will be a timely opportunity to examine the practical and policy challenges for implementing the Mayor’s Transport Strategy - which seeks to promote the development of ‘Healthy Streets’, improve passenger experience and support wider regeneration and economic development.


Delegates will consider potential impact of strategy’s traffic reduction measures - including proposals for increased pedestrianisation, emissions zone reform and expanding support for cycling beyond the central Boroughs - as well as key issues for the management of freight in Central London.


They will also assess what is needed to underpin local regeneration and to link transport development with the aims of the London Housing Strategy, and discussion will bring out latest thinking on the challenges for future major infrastructure schemes, such as Crossrail 2 and the planned tube expansion - including how to attract the investment needed to fund the Mayor’s plans.


Further sessions discuss priorities for enhancing passenger experience across London - looking at plans to deliver mobile broadband onto the London Underground, improve transport accessibility, utilise big data and increase responsiveness to passenger concerns.
