This seminar was 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 considered potential impact of the Strategy’s traffic reduction measures - including proposals for increased pedestrianisation, emissions zone reform and expanding support for cycling beyond the central Boroughs. - Key issues for the management of freight and the growth of electric vehicles in Central London were also discussed.
They also assessed 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 discussed priorities for enhancing passenger experience across London - looking at plans to improve transport accessibility, utilise big data, and develop mobile applications to and increase responsiveness to passenger concerns, as well as improve commuter knowledge and information.
