According to current demographic trends, Crossrail 1 will be full to capacity by 2031 as London’s population reaches a new peak of 10 million.
So what new transport schemes will London need to support its growth in 20, 30 and 40 years? What is being proposed to meet this demand? And what areas of the capital will be unlocked by new transport investments to support the delivery of new jobs and homes?
This NLA morning conference brought together London transport providers, policy makers, planners and consultants to discuss the picture for long-term infrastructure planning and funding, examine how transport can unlock development and regeneration opportunities, and debate what London needs to support its growth up to 2050.
This conference supports the NLA exhibition Planes, Trains and Drains: London's Booming Infrastructure Business
