Policy Forum for London

Priorities for transport in London and the South East: infrastructure, funding, and the Mayor's Transport Strategy

July 2017

Following the publication of the Mayor’s Draft Transport Strategy, delegates at this conference discussed its proposals for the future of the transport network in London, as well as priorities for improving connections with the South East and beyond.

Sessions addressed questions about the potential impact of major infrastructure schemes such as expansion at Heathrow, the Brighton Main Line upgrade and improvements to the M25 and M4, as well as the policy environment from Central Government and the Greater London Authority.

Attendees also considered the next steps for decarbonising London and ways to improve air quality in the context of the Mayor of London’s announcement of a new daily ‘Toxicity Charge’ beginning in October 2017 that will be applied to the most polluting vehicles. Further sessions covered priorities for integrating active travel into the network; ways to increase the uptake of walking and cycling around inner London, as well as with outer London boroughs; and what more boroughs can do to coordinate their strategic planning.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for London seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
