How we are locally implementing the Mayor of London’s transport strategy

We are preparing a local implementation plan (LIP) for the Mayor of London’s transport strategy.

Mayor of London’s transport strategy

The Mayor of London released his transport strategy in 2018.

The strategy sets out how walking, cycling and getting public transport around London can be improved.

The strategy has three main objectives:

1. Healthy streets and healthy people

  • If streets and street networks are designed to encourage walking, cycling and public transport use, people will rely less on cars.
  • If people use cars less, this will make people healthier.

2. A good public transport experience

  • Public transport is the most efficient way for people to travel over distances that are too long to walk or cycle.
  • If more people use public transport instead of private cars, this could dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on London’s streets.

3. New homes and jobs

More people than ever want to live and work in London. Planning the city around walking, cycling and public transport use will:

  • unlock growth in new area
  • ensure that London grows in a way that benefits everyone.
