New London Architecture

Transport & Infrastructure

Exploring the future of mobility and its impact on the city form

An efficient transport system is critical in keeping London functioning. 26.8 million trips are made every day in the capital, expecting to grow up to 33 million by 2040. As such, London needs to build the infrastructure that will allow an increased number of people to move around the city efficiently, while addressing critical issues such as air pollution and prioritising the health of its citizens. 

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy sets the goal to achieve 80% of all trips to be made by sustainable modes of transport by 2041 and promote the adoption of Healthy Streets. Are we designing and prioritising high quality mixed use developments, close to public transport nodes, in order to deliver this vision? How do we shift from car-base to a place-base city? How innovation in micro-mobility and mobility technologies will impact the future management and shape of our streets?

The NLA Transport & Infrastructure programme discusses the future of movement in London by bringing together professionals from both the public and private sectors in a series of events throughout the year.
