The Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out his transport vision for London and details how Transport for London and partners will deliver the plan over the next 20 years.
It is a key part of a strategic policy framework to support and shape London's social and economic development.
How the strategy was developed
- In 2008 the Mayor published ‘Way to Go’, a consultation which took a broad approach to London’s transport. The following year, to build on that work, the Mayor delegated responsibility for developing a detailed draft strategy to Transport for London (TfL), part of the GLA group.
- In Autumn 2009, following a statutory consultation with the London Assembly, there was a public consultation on the draft Transport Strategy. TfL then delivered a report to the Mayor detailing the responses to the consultation.
- During the consultation period, an Integrated Impact Assessment was produced to inform the development of the policies and processes laid out in the Transport Strategy.
- The London Assembly has given numerous responses throughout the process of developing the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
- The final strategy document was published on 10 May 2010.
- Moving forward, London boroughs will play an important in making the ambitions of the strategy a reality for Londoners.
How to read the strategy
The strategy is a large document, reflecting the broad area of work it addreses. To make it easier to navigate we’ve separated the report out into twelve downloadable sections.
There are three broad parts of the Transport Strategy:
This is the first two PDFs and features the Introduction, Table of Contents and Executive Summary (Chapter one), the Vision (Chapter 2) and Context (Chapter 3) of the strategy.
This section is divided into eight documents, and looks at the Challenges and strategic policies (Chapter 4), Transport proposals (Chapter 5, pt1), Proposals to encourage more cycling and walking (Chapter 5, pt2), Proposals to improve safety and security (Chapter 5, pt3), Proposals to improve London's environment (Chapter 5, pt4), Proposals to reduce transport's contribution to climate change (Chapter 5, pt5), Proposals to manage the demand for travel (Chapter 5, pt6) and the Expected outcomes of the strategy (Chapter 6).
This is divided into two documents and looks at Delivery of the strategy (Chapter 7, 8 and 9) and the Annexes which includes a Table of figures and glossary.
