Our purpose

Keep London working and growing and make life in London better

  • Meet the rising expectations of our customers and users
  • Plan ahead to meet the challenges of a growing population
  • Unlock economic development and growth

London is a fast growing city, with the population growing by 20 per cent to 10 million people by 2030. Our transport network needs to grow if the city is going to continue to function and as a result we have a network of projects in the pipeline:


Pipeline of projects


Crossrail 2

A proposed new high-frequency, high-capacity rail line running through London and into Surrey and Hertfordshire. It will add capacity to the rail network in London and the south east, supporting economic regeneration by providing the infrastructure needed to build new homes and create more jobs.

Vision for Cycling

The Mayor’s vision is that cycling in London will become an integral part of the transport network. There will be a “Tube-like” network of direct, high capacity, joined-up cycle tracks. Many will run in parallel with key Underground, rail and bus routes. There will be more Dutch-style fully segregated lanes and junctions; more mandatory cycle lanes, semi-segregated from traffic; and a network of direct back street Quietway routes. Our streets will be safer and by 2020 we aimed to have doubled cycling in the city.

Developing the Rail network

The Mayor wants us to get more control over London’s fragmented suburban rail services currently operated as concessions from central Government.

Roads Task Force

The Roads Task Force was set up by the Mayor in 2012 to tackle the challenges facing London’s streets and roads. This independent body brought together a wide range of interests and expertise, united in the belief that London needed a long-term strategy for roads and a commitment to major investment in street management and urban design. Published in July 2013, the final report sets out a vision of how London can cope with major population growth and remain one of the most vibrant, accessible and attractive world cities.
