Improving public transport

Closed 1 Feb 2013

Opened 29 Oct 2012


The projects outlined in this consultation would follow a number of major improvements we have put in place for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport users. All of the improvements across public transport and the road network are designed to support and encourage growth.

In the last 13 years, we have extended the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Greenwich, Lewisham and Woolwich, created the London Overground network, extended and upgraded the Jubilee line, and introduced the UK’s first urban cable car – the Emirates Air Line. We are also continuing to invest in public transport. When Crossrail opens, in 2018, it will provide another new public transport connection across the river, linking Custom House and Woolwich stations.

All of these improvements are making it easier for people to travel around London and cross the River Thames, and are helping London’s population and economy to fl ourish. However, because not every journey can be made by public transport, the projects described in the rest of this leafl et are designed to improve conditions for road traffic.
