Khan – London transport system to be zero emissions

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, has announced plans to make the whole of London’s transport system zero emissions by 2050.

Khan said that the zero emissions target would be achieved through improvements and extensions to the Underground, DLR and Overground train networks. Additionally the report published by the Mayor’s office said that there will be new green buses and taxis, new river crossings and the “transformation of London’s streets to make walking, cycling and public transport the most appealing and practical choices for Londoners right across the capital”.

As part of the 2050 roadmap, plans are in place to “reduce and then eliminate emissions from the transport fleet”.

This includes initiatives to encourage more delivery firms to use electric powered vehicles and also work together, so there are fewer vans operating in the inner-city area.

The Mayor of London’s draft Transport Strategy is open to public consultation until 2 October 2017 and can be accessed by visiting www.tfl.gov.uk/mayors-transport-strategy
