Policy Forum for London

Delivering the Mayor’s Transport Strategy and improving transport links across the South East

Morning, Thursday, 28th March 2019

Central London


This seminar will discuss the challenges facing the delivery and implementation of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, 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 £27.7 billion between 2023 and 2036 - attendees will discuss the opportunities for continued investment and development of major transport infrastructure in London and the South East.

With continued levels of air pollution across London exceeding legal limits, sessions will look at the challenges for reducing emissions from both public and private transport, including the expansion of electric fleets and development of Ultra Low Emission Zones, as well as the opportunities for introducing further sustainable and active transportation options.

Planned sessions will also assess the business case for investment in transport infrastructure, and the possibilities for both local and regional economic growth and regeneration.
