  1. 1. Transport challenges and priorities for east and south east London
  2. 2. What we do 2 More than 30 million journeys every day Public transport mode share for London has increased by 10.6% since 2000 We are delivering one of the world's largest investment programmes We manage 580km of London's busiest roads and all 6,200 traffic signals We regulate taxis and private hire trade £200bn of freight is moved on London's roads every year We operate the Congestion Charging and Low Emission Zone Number of journeys made in London in 2013/14 2.4 bn Buses 1.5 m Dial-a-ride Rivers 8.6 m Santander cycles 8.2 m Emirates Air Line DLR 101.6 m 205.3 m 135.7 m Tramlink 31.2 m 1.26 bn London Underground Cycling Taxi and PHV 147.5 m 3.65 bn Roads (minus Taxi/PHV) 1.4 m London Overground
  3. 3. Sources of funding – 2015/16 Total income £11bn 42% 17% 8% 6% 20% 7% Fares Grant Crossrail grant Commercial & Congestion Charge Cash and borrowing Business Rate Retention 3
  4. 4. Where the money is spent – 2015/16 All income is spent on running and improving transport services. Because of this, there is no 'retained profit'. 4 Investment Running the network£11bn34% 66%
  5. 5. How far we have come 5
  6. 6. We are faced with the huge challenge of a rapidly rising population 20% population growth 14% employment growth 2011 - 2031 6
  7. 7. Ensuring population growth is productive growth London is already one of the most productive world cities and therefore vital to the UK economy – its growth will be accommodated by further increasing the density of new development. 7 1.6m New Londoners 0.6m New jobs Population Employment
  8. 8. Rapid job creation has driven population growth but undersupply of housing is a threat to future growth 8 25,000 average units Delivered each year (2001-2011)
  9. 9. 9 Transport links are critical to unlocking housing development Upper Lea Valley City Fringe Stratford & Olympic Park Stanmore, Edgware & Colindale Wembley Islington / Seven Sisters Tower Hamlets & Greenwich Rate of housing delivery within OAs along the Thames in East London has been slow – to speed this up requires substantial upfront investment in infrastructure and land remediation
  10. 10. Finding new sources of funding • The way transport infrastructure is funded is changing – transport investment need not all come from the Exchequer • Crossrail is two-thirds funded from London sources and the Northern Line Extension received only a loan guarantee from the Treasury. Both will deliver a major boost to the economy and generate new tax revenue for the Exchequer • Major projects will need to maximise non-government sources of funding in future – these packages are best assembled at city level and need to deliver connectivity as well as affordable homes 10 This will help London deliver a projected fiscal surplus of around £100bn by 2025, up from £36bn today Transport capacity AgglomerationIncreased productivity ‘Payback’

  16. 16. Long-term DLR upgrade aspirations New capacity in central London • Very long-term ambition to extend west from Bank • Increases rail capacity in central London at fraction of cost of new line • Complementary to Crossrail 2 Lewisham ‘orbital gateway’ • Potential for major station upgrade • High-frequency DLR and Bakerloo line services • Metro-style Southeastern services • Integrated with local buses Beckton Depot • More depot space is needed if DLR is to support growth • This is potential for a combined DLR, highway and bus depot • This could make efficient use of space under or above the proposed Gallions Crossing Connecting the eastern Royals • Potential extensions from Gallions Reach towards Barking town centre & Thamesmead could support thousands of new homes • They would link much of NE & SE London to 30,000+ jobs planned in the Royal Docks • Could be delivered in stages just like DLR’s Woolwich to Stratford link Stratford ‘orbital gateway’ • New flagship transport hub & emerging city centre • Major uplifts in DLR frequencies to Stratford are possible • This would complement improvements to Crossrail, Overground and new services to the Upper Lea Valley (STAR) New DLR trains • Replacing and expanding the DLR fleet is essential to Docklands growth • Without doing this, we cannot increase capacity on DLR or extend it • Trains and depot space are the two most significant constraints to enhancing DLR capacity
  17. 17. There were significant improvements in CP4
  18. 18. CP5 investment is underway, though some has been deferred as a result of the Hendy review
  19. 19. TfL and NR are working to identify the next generation of improvements: higher capacity radial routes 1919 West Coast • More 12-car trains • Preparation for HS2 at Euston and Old Oak South Western • Prep for CR2 • South London Heathrow Rail Link • +4tph Windsor lines • Extra fast line frequency from grade separation at Basingstoke and Woking South Central • BML upgrade: two extra platforms at East Croydon, remodelled Windmill Jn, all trains 12- car Great Northern • Increase peak frequency into Moorgate by signal changes Great Western • Hex / Crossrail / T5 • Western rail access to LHR • Old Oak interchange South Eastern • Frequency improvements Bexley Riverside / Dartford / Ebbsfleet / Gravesend High Speed 1 • More fully length 12- car trains West Anglia • More frequency, lengthening • 4-track Lea Valley line to add paths and prep for CR2 Chiltern • Longer trains • Greater connectivity to Old Oak Common Great Eastern • +2tph GE outers
  20. 20. Bakerloo Line Extension 20
  21. 21. East and Southeast London River Crossings 21
  22. 22. There is a need to address connectivity across the River Thames 22
  23. 23. The TfL River Crossings programme a) Silvertown Tunnel b) A new crossing from Thamesmead – Beckton (Gallions Reach) c) A new crossing from Belvedere - Rainham 23
  24. 24. Silvertown Tunnel • Twin-bore road tunnel between Greenwich Peninsula and Tidal Basin • Links A2/A102 corridor with Docklands • Requires user charging of the new crossing and the Blackwall tunnel • User charging will manage demand and pay for the new infrastructure • Opportunity for significant bus network crossing the river • DCO application submitted April 2016 • Pending consent, the tunnel could be open by 2022/23 24
  25. 25. Development Consent Order process 25
  26. 26. Key milestones for Silvertown tunnel • Spring 2016 – Submit Development Consent Order (DCO) application • Spring/Summer 2016 – Public and stakeholders can submit a response to Planning Inspectorate • May 2016 – TfL industry day • Summer 2016 – Examination period begins • Autumn 2017 – DCO decision expected • 2018 – Award contract • 2019 – Construction begins • 2022/23 – Tunnel opens 26
  27. 27. Gallions Reach and Belvedere river crossings 27
  28. 28. Consultation • Ran between 2 Dec and 12 February • Almost 90 percent supported at least one new crossing • 77 per cent supported both • We collected valuable information on how people think they may use the crossing • This will help us to decide how to incorporate public transport – including new and extended bus routes, and possibly a new rail link 28
  29. 29. Are they bridges or tunnels? • We are considering the feasibility of bridges or tunnels for both crossings • There’s still more work to be done before a decision can be made • Factors that could influence this decision include – What form of public transport is proposed? – What would the land and property impacts be for each crossing? – What would the environmental impacts be? – What would the impact on other infrastructure be, i.e. river traffic and London City Airport? – Which option would be most cost effective given the questions above? 29
  30. 30. Indicative public transport connections 30
  31. 31. Next steps • Summer 2016 – discussions with the Mayor • Late 2016 – Carry out more detailed assessments • 2017 – Agreement on funding and decision to proceed • 2017/18 – Statutory consultation • 2018 – Submit application for the powers to build the scheme • 2021 – Contract award • 2025 – Estimated completion 31
