Next steps for transport in London and the South East - infrastructure and environmental priorities, regeneration and the Mayor’s Transport Strategy

Morning, Thursday, 28th March 2019

Central London


This seminar will discuss key issues for the delivery and implementation of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS), and wider transport connections across the South East.

Following the publication of the National Infrastructure Assessment, which recommends the Government support the Mayor in funding Crossrail 2, and suggests an indicative budget of £27.7bn between 2023 and 2036 - attendees will discuss the priorities for continued investment and development of major transport infrastructure in London and the South East, the impact on local and regional economic growth and regeneration, and implications of the announced delay to the completion of Crossrail.

Further sessions discuss next steps for reducing emissions from both public and private transport, including the expansion of electric fleets and development of Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZs), as well as the opportunities for introducing further sustainable and active transportation options.
