Will the Mayor’s Budget affect how Londoners get around the capital – both today and in the future?

What about the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) – how much more money does it need?

The London Assembly Budget and Performance Committee will tomorrow discuss the Mayor’s draft Budget for 2015/16 [1] and how it will affect Transport for London and the London Legacy Development Corporation.

The Committee will explore issues raised in its Pre-Budget Report[2] which questions how targets for improved services will be achieved while the purse strings are tightened.

The following guests will be questioned about issues including the closing of tube ticket offices, the replacement deal for the collapsed Bombardier signalling contract, progress on the Olympic Stadium and the Olympicopolis development:

Isabel Dedring, Deputy Mayor for Transport

Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Commissioner for Transport, TfL

Andrew Pollins, Interim Chief Finance Officer, TfL

Neale Coleman CBE, Deputy Chairman, LLDC

David Goldstone CBE, Chief Executive, LLDC

The meeting will take place on Thursday, 8 January from 2.00pm in Committee Room 5 at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).
