  2. 2. From good to great - London needs to pick up the pace How do we remake our transport system to help ensure London survives current social, environmental and economic challenges, is resilient to future shocks and flourishes as a more liveable city? There are some positive trends and good foundations to build on, but London needs an urgent transition to a post-car and post-oil transport system. Changing a city takes time – but we can’t afford delays.

  4. 4. Everybody walks … but nobody cares “No powerful lobby upholds the general interest in being able to walk without constraint or danger. There's no money in it and everyone expects someone else to put in the hard work.” Nick Cohen, Why is Britain such a dangerous place for walkers? The Observer

  7. 7. “On any great urban street, every part of the current use has it’s fierce defenders.” Jarrett Walker, Human Transit

  9. 9. From good to great - London needs to pick up the pace “No goal, then no direction: no underlying plan, no consensus, then no effective practical action. If society is paralysed today, it is not for lack of means but for lack of purpose.” Lewis Mumford, The Culture of Cities
