Motion text

That this House notes the transformation of London's transport system in recent years since the creation of Transport for London (TfL); acknowledges that increases in tube and bus reliability and customer satisfaction are due to sustained Government investment, a sensible fares policy and effective management; recognises that the transport is carrying 30 million journeys per day, more than ever before; further notes that London's population is expected to grow by 1.6 million to reach 10 million people by 2030; welcomes the findings of the OECD which reports that the transport of people, goods and services makes cities work and that it is cities that drive national productivity; notes that 4,000 apprenticeships and over 60,000 jobs outside of London are supported by TfL's investment programme; and urges the Government to protect vital investment for TfL, allowing it to modernise ageing assets on the road, tube and rail networks, maximise capacity, commit to new projects such as Crossrail 2 and further improve rail services in London and the South East.
