Travelling like cattle or commuting with ease?

09 July 2019

London’s population is approximately 9.1 million and is forecast to grow to 10.8 million by 2041. This translates to about 6 million additional trips each day by the same year.

Working patterns, lifestyles, consumer habits and technology all impact the transport system and how Londoners use it. Challenges will include:

  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Unlocking housing and economic growth
  • Improving public health


How will London’s transport system cope? What transport infrastructure projects should be prioritised in the future? Can they be delivered? How will they be funded?


Tomorrow, the London Assembly Transport Committee will look at how London’s transport system will need to adapt to future constraints and help address challenges facing the capital.


The guests are:

  • Lucinda Turner, Director of Strategic Planning, TfL
  • Simon Nielsen, Head of Strategic Analysis, TfL
  • Nicole Badstuber, Research Associate in Urban Infrastructure Policy and Governance, University of Cambridge
  • Silviya Barrett, Research Manager, Centre for London
  • John Dickie, Director of Policy and Strategy, London First


The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 10 July 2019 at 10:00am in The Chamber (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).


Media and members of the public are invited to attend


The meeting can also be viewed LIVE via webcast
