Crossroads: Choosing a future for London’s transport in the digital age debt

Crossroads: Choosing a future for London’s transport in the digital age debt

While London’s road transport is of foundational importance to the city’s communities and economies, it causes a number of major problems. In 2010, the equivalent of 9,416 deaths were attributed to air pollution, and congestion exacted an estimated economic cost of £5.5 billion. This is the result of the type of transport modes available to Londoners, how they are used, and the systems that determine transport priorities. As such, one of the primary methods of reducing transport-related problems in London is the unprecedented modal shift towards more sustainable forms of transport that has occurred over the last decade or so.
