Answer for Draft Transport Strategy

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Draft Transport Strategy, to be published for consultation in early January, will clearly state the interaction between the Transport and Culture Strategies, and the dependence of cultural activities and other elements of London's world city status on an efficient and easy to use transport network. Addressing social needs is one of the key objectives of the Strategy. The social challenges and ways of addressing them are set out in early chapters in the Strategy, with chapters based on transport system improvements detailing relevant policies and proposals.
