This conference will examine policy priorities for London’s transport system and its funding in light of the challenges posed by the pandemic.
It takes place with the Mayor seeking to ensure the capital’s transport network receives the necessary funding to move forward with major projects and adapt to the impact of the pandemic in the context of a new TfL funding settlement from the Government.
Overall, sessions in the agenda will bring out latest thinking on:
- priorities for investment and the outlook for the development of transport infrastructure in London
- the pandemic - recovery from its impact on transport in London, including on service levels and financial sustainability
- London’s road network - meeting the challenges of decarbonisation and serving the needs of road users
- bringing confidence back to the city, boosting international connectivity and competitiveness, and attracting passengers back to public transport
We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from: Councillor Julian Bell, Councillor, London Borough of Ealing; and Board Member, Transport for London; Laura Citron, CEO, London & Partners; and Member, London Recovery Board; and Matt Gorman, Director, Sustainability & Environment, Heathrow Airport.
The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DfT; the Government Legal Department; the ORR; and the UK Space Agency.
