The Mayor’s Transport Strategy was published in March 2018, after a consultation run by Transport for London (TfL) between June and October 2017.
Every year, TfL reports on the progress and developments in travel and transport, in their Travel in London report.
Some important things have happened since the Strategy was published.
New transport services
In the last few months of 2019 alone, TfL has enhanced services across different parts of London. On London Overground, new early morning services have started on the Gospel Oak to Barking Route, while services increased from four to five trains per hour between Richmond and Clapham Junction to Stratford and to approximately every 15 minutes between Watford Junction and Euston. A new Victoria line timetable introduced in November means there is now a train every 100 second for around three hours each day during the weekday morning and evening peaks. In October, TfL launched a new consultation on its plans for the Bakerloo line extension which could transform transport capacity in south east London.
TfL is making great progress on cycle routes, and London will have 150km protected cycling space by May 2020. For example, four routes launched over the summer:
extension to Cycleway 6 route at King's Cross
- C20 between Enfield Town and Palmers Green
- C17 between Elephant & Castle and Burgess Park
- C23 between Lea Bridge and Whipps Cross
The Mayor launched the world-leading Direct Vision Standard in October 2019. It will remove the most dangerous Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) from London’s streets, with lorries having to meet new standards by the time enforcement begins later in 2020.
TfL has been working with boroughs to install charging points for electric vehicles in local areas, with funding secured through the Go Ultra Low Cities scheme.
There will also be 300 rapid chargers across London by end of 2020. Over 200 are already in place, helping commercial vehicles and fleets such as taxis and private hire move to electric vehicles.
